D.C. Judge Rules Against Delta Pilots, Says Trustee Not Arbitrary, Capricious
Mealey's (June 13, 2018, 9:01 AM EDT) -- WASHINGTON, D.C. — Allegations by a putative class of approximately 1,700 former Delta Air Lines Inc. pilots that final benefits determinations made under their retirement plan violated the Employee Retirement Income Security Act were rejected June 11 by a District of Columbia federal judge, who found instead that a trustee for the plan was neither arbitrary nor capricious (K. Wendell Lewis, et al. v. Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, No. 15-1328, D. D.C.; 2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 97210).
