Cottillion v. United Refining — ERISA — affirmance — Ambro
The Third Circuit today held that a company violated ERISA when it failed to give its retirees a benefits-adjustment it had promised. I’m pretty sure one of Ambro’s clerks cried when he told them he’d assigned the opinion to himself.
Joining Ambro were Chagares and Vanaskie. Arguing counsel were Christopher Rillo for the company and Tybe Brett for the retirees.
