COOP. BENEFIT ADM'RS, INC. v. OGDEN, 03-30518
ERISA section 502(a)(3)(B)'s "appropriate equitable relief" language proscribes precisely the type of monetary relief that plaintiff requests; ERISA plan fiduciaries do not have a federal common law right to sue a beneficiary for legal relief on a theory of unjust enrichment or restitution. The claim is dismissed.
