Conkright v. Frommert, 08-810

In an ERISA action based on a plan administrator's interpretation of the benefits plan at issue to call for an approach known as the "phantom account" method, the Second Circuit's order affirming the district court's order declining to apply a deferential standard to the administrator's interpretation is reversed where the district court should have applied a deferential standard of review to the administrator's interpretation of the plan on remand, despite the administrator's earlier mistaken interpretation.
