ERISA breach of fiduciary duty claims challenging the selection and retention of investment options in retirement plans, along with the investment and recordkeeping fees charged to plan participants, continue to rise. The Supreme Court weighed in to a limited degree in the Hughes v. Northwestern case, but left many critical questions unanswered. However, a plethora of recent decisions at the motion to dismiss and class certification stages, as well as a recent summary judgment win for the defense, have significantly changed the landscape for defendants in these cases and provided insight into where plaintiffs making these challenges should focus and what defenses to such claims can be most effective.
We will discuss the current trends in these ERISA litigation cases and the key takeaways that we believe plan sponsors and fiduciaries should be focused on, including fiduciary practices that can help insulate plans from these kinds of challenges.
