ERIC Amicus Brief in Hurlic v Southern California Gas Co. (October 11, 2006)
ERIC October 11 filed an amicus brief with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals urging affirmance of a district court grant of summary judgment in favor of Southern California Gas Co. and rejecting the appellants' contention that cash balance plans violate ERISA's age discrimination provisions.
ERIC previously filed amicus briefs in Cooper v. IBM with the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals and in Register v. PNC Bank Services Group with the Third Circuit. A unanimous panel of the Seventh Circuit in August overturned the district court's decision in Cooper that found the plan designs violated ERISA. Register is still pending appeal before the Third Circuit.
