Pruter v. Local 210's Pension Tr. Fund, 16-733

In an action seeking damages for fraud, breach of contract and violation of an employee benefit plan, the district court's dismissal of the claims is: 1) affirmed in part where plaintiffs' state law claims arise under the Railway Labor Act (RLA) and are thus preempted; but 2) vacated in part as to dismissal of the RLA claims, as those claims bear a close resemblance to claims brought pursuant to the Employee Retirement Income Securities Act (ERISA), and it is appropriate to borrow and apply ERISA's three‐year statute of limitations rather than the six‐month limitations period the district court borrowed from Section 10(b) of the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA).
