ERISA class action plaintiffs not entitled to jury
Johanna L. Matloff was quoted in the article "ERISA class action plaintiffs not entitled to jury
," which was published by New England In-House
on November 25, 2019. The article provides an overview of a class action suit brought by plaintiffs accusing former employer of breaching its fiduciary duties by mismanaging its employee retirement plan and were not entitled to a jury trial.
Johanna's mention and quote in the article reads:
Johanna L. Matloff, an ERISA litigator in Boston who represents defendants, said she was not surprised by the decision, particularly since one of the underlying goals of ERISA is to encourage employers to offer these types of benefits to employees.
“If employers know they have exposure to expensive and time-consuming jury trials, they may not be as likely to take on the risk of offering such benefits,” Matloff said.
