Plaintiffs' Misdirected Demand for Documents Fails, Claim for ERISA Civil Penalties Is Dismissed
Williams MullenLink to more items from this source
Sept. 18, 2015

"The court noted that the purpose of the civil penalty under section 502(c) 'is not to compensate participants for injuries but to punish noncompliance with ERISA.' The statute sets out important disclosure requirements, among them the obligation of the plan administrator, upon written request from any participant or beneficiary, to furnish a copy of the latest [documents] ... [T]he Boyd plaintiffs did not ask the correct entity for the documents. Sysco was the plan administrator of the plan, UBH was the claims administrator for the mental health benefits, and nothing in the plan defined the 'plan administrator' as the 'claims administrator.' " [Boyd v. Sysco Corp., No. 4:13-cv-00599 (D.S.C. Sept. 3, 2015)]
