CenTra Inc. v. Central States, No. 08‐4041
In an ERISA case involving employer withdrawal liability under the Multiemployer Pension Plan Amendments Act of 1980 (MPPAA), district court's judgment vacating an arbitrator's reduced award to a fund and reinstating the fund's assessment is affirmed where the withdrawal liability was properly based on the contribution histories of two of plaintiff's former subsidiaries and such contribution histories were assumed by plaintiff in a merger as none of the steps in the reorganization met the MPPAA's statutory requirements for avoiding withdrawal liability.
