Brown v. S. Cal. IBEW-NECA Trust Funds, No. 08-55398
In an ERISA action regarding the suspension of plaintiff's early retirement benefits, judgment for plaintiff is affirmed where defendant trustees conflated "electrical construction work" with "employment as an electrical contractor" under the benefits plan, thus running afoul of the court of appeals' holding that "each provision in an agreement should be construed consistently with the entire document such that no provision is rendered nugatory."
