Text of Ninth Circuit Opinion Upholding ERISA Forum Selection Clause and Denying Writ of Mandamus (PDF)
U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth CircuitLink to more items from this source
Apr. 2, 2021

From the summary by the court: "Agreeing with other Circuits, the panel held that even though provision of 'ready access to the Federal courts' is among ERISA's goals, ERISA does not bar forum selection clauses. Thus, the plan properly designated, from among venues permitted by the statute, the venue where the plan was administered." [Becker v. U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, Oakland, No. 20-72805 (9th Cir. Apr. 1, 2021)]
