“Federal Court Decision Creates More Uncertainty for ERISA Co-Fiduciaries on Contribution Claims,” Employee Relations Law Journal

In this article, Jenner & Block Partner Douglas A. Sondgeroth and Associate Michael W. Ross examine the implications of Guididas v. Community National Bank Corp. and the growing split among federal courts over whether plan fiduciaries have a right under ERISA to seek contribution or indemnification from co-fiduciaries.  This question and the power of courts to develop federal common law under ERISA present significant implications for many strategic and tactical litigation decisions in ERISA cases.
