New opinion — Third Circuit affirms in pro se ERISA appeal

Secretary USDOL v. Kwasny — ERISA — affirmance — McKee

The Third Circuit today affirmed a district court’s grant of summary judgment in an ERISA case against Richard Kwasny, a former law-firm partner who directed employee retirement-fund contributions into the firm’s general assets.

Joining McKee were Restrepo and Hornak WDPA by designation. The case was decided without argument.

Kwasny is identified in the caption as “Attorney for Appellant,” and is listed on Pacer as “Richard J. Kwasny, Esq.” and coded “Pro Se Atty,” having used on his civil information statement an email address starting with “kwasnylaw@.” Kwasny was suspended in PA for five years in 2014 and disbarred in New Jersey in 2015 for mismanaging client funds and practicing law while on administrative suspension.
