United States Ninth Circuit

ResetAA Font size: Print

Munro v. University of Southern California, 17-55550

Affirmed that university employees were not required to arbitrate their ERISA claims alleging breach of fiduciary duty in the administration of their retirement plans. The defendants insisted that the employees were bound by individual arbitration clauses in their employment contracts and therefore could not sue in court. Disagreeing, the Ninth Circuit held that the present dispute fell outside the scope of the arbitration clauses, because the employees had consented only to arbitrate claims brought on their own behalf, and their claims here were brought on behalf of the ERISA plans.
