Medina v. Catholic Health Initiatives, Case No. 13-01249
United States District Court for the District of Colorado
In this pension plan lawsuit filed by Keller Rohrback and Co-Counsel, Plaintiffs allege that Defendants are violating the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (“ERISA”), a federal law, by, among other things:
• underfunding the defined benefit pension plans (“CHI Pension Plans”) by over $892 million;
• failing to furnish Plaintiffs or any member of the proposed Class with a Pension Benefit Statement, Summary Annual Reports, Notification of Failure to Meet Minimum Funding, or Funding Notices;
• failing to file annual reports with respect to the CHI Pension Plans with the Secretary of Labor; and
• failing to meet the requirements regarding the trust that holds the assets of the CHI Pension Plans.
Plaintiffs further allege that Defendants’ claim that the CHI Pension Plans are exempt from ERISA’s protections because they are “church plans” is improper because Catholic Health Initiatives is not a church or a convention or association of churches, and because none of the CHI Pension Plans were established by a church or a convention or association of churches.
