Battoni v. IBEW Local Union No. 102 Employee Pension Plan, No. 08-3743

By FindLaw Staff | Last updated on

In plaintiffs' ERISA action challenging an amendment to their welfare plan as an unlawful cutback of their accrued benefits under their pension plan, the judgment of the district court in favor of the plaintiffs is affirmed as the amendment violated the ERISA's Anti-Cutback rule, 29 U.S.C. section 1054(g), by constructively amending the pension plan in a manner that decreased an accrued benefit under that plan.
