    Edwards Wildman Trio Writes Article on How US Airways V. McCutchen Spurs Revision of ERISA Plans in Law360

    News
    Benjamin Ferrucci, an attorney in the firm's Boston office, wrote an article about how the US Supreme Court held in U.S. Airways v. McCutchen that in a Employee Retirement Income Security Act Section 502(a)(3) action for equitable relief to enforce an ERISA plan’s terms, the terms govern the specific right to relief, while equitable doctrines provide default legal rules in Law360. In the article, "US Airways V. McCutchen Spurs Revision of ERISA Plans," the author discussed that if mindful of McCutchen when drafting or revising ERISA plans, plan sponsors and fiduciaries should include language that is explicit, comprehensive and unambiguous enough to protect the plan and give it certainty and predictability in the administration of its terms and the pursuit of its rights.
