Petition for pension de-risking rehearing filed in Lee v. Verizon


Plaintiffs’ have filed a petition for re-hearing with the 5th Circuit in Lee v. Verizon Communs., Inc., 2015 U.S. App. LEXIS 14588 (5th Cir. Tex. Aug. 17, 2015), asking that the court re-visit its decision and preserving their right to appeal. Hopefully the 5th Circuit will realize that the risks associated with kicking retirees to the curb are just as important as managing pension volatility.
