Shaver v. Siemens Corp., 10-4147

In a class action by former employees alleging that the employer and its retirement plans violated ERISA by refusing to provide them with permanent job separation (PJS) pension benefits when it terminated their employment, the district court's denial of the defendants' motion for summary judgment is reversed, where the employees were not entitled to PJS benefits because the plans as written did not entitle them to PJS benefits, and no ERISA provision required otherwise.
