GEROSA v. SAVASTA & CO., INC., 02-9005, 02-9007
Because Diduck v. Kaszycki & Sons Contractors, Inc., 974 F.2d 270 (2d Cir. 1992), has been superseded by subsequent decisions of the Supreme Court, and because Congress cannot have intended ERISA to preempt the plaintiff trustees' unexceptional state-law claims, dismissal of claims of negligence of a pension plan's actuary is reversed.
