Labor, Benefit and Employment - Aerospace Manufacturer

After a major aerospace manufacturer notified union retirees that their health insurance deductibles and co-payments were increasing, they filed suit in the Eastern District of Michigan alleging that their benefits had vested when they retired. A different group of retirees filed a mirror-image lawsuit in the Middle District of Tennessee and the union dismissed the first lawsuit. The following day, we filed a declaratory judgment action in Northern District of Illinois, the company’s home district and commenced discovery. The cases were consolidated the Northern District of Illinois, which granted our motion for summary judgment.
