July 6, 2017—In Osberg v. Foot Locker, Inc., No. 15-3602-cv, slip op. (2d Cir. July 6, 2017), the Second Circuit Court of Appeals rejected employer arguments that would have made it far more difficult to obtain class relief in employee-benefits cases under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, holding that reformation of a pension plan document and monetary relief to a class composed of pension plan participants and beneficiaries did not require proof that each individual class member relied on a mistaken understanding of the plan. The Court sustained a class-wide judgment based on generalized evidence, where the trial court had found that the employer deliberately misled the plan’s participants about a crucial aspect of the plan. Bredhoff & Kaiser represented the class on appeal.
