Oct. 4, 2021

"The son of a man murdered by a Colombian guerrilla group can obtain money from a 401(k) account connected to the perpetrators, a Massachusetts federal judge ruled, deciding a novel legal question involving federal benefits and anti-terrorism laws.... The [Terrorism Risk Insurance Act of 2002] begins with a 'notwithstanding' opening clause, signaling that it's intended to override any conflicting federal statutes, including [ERISA], [the judge] said." [Caballero v. Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia, No. 21-11393 (D. Mass. Sep. 30, 2021)]
