On May 11, 2018, we filed a lawsuit on behalf of participants in the FirstGroup America, Inc. Retirement Savings Plan (the “Plan”). The lawsuit alleges that the Plan’s fiduciaries (the Defendants in the case) violated the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) by failing to act in the interest of Plan participants and promoting the business interests of the Plan’s consultant, Aon Hewitt, at the expense of the Plan and its participants.
The lawsuit seeks to recover the Plan’s financial losses and obtain injunctive and other equitable relief. For a copy of the complaint, click here.
This case is entitled McGinnes v. FirstGroup America, Inc. et al., Case No. 1:18-cv-326 (S.D. Ohio)
Q:What Is A Class Action?
In a class action lawsuit, one or more people, called the “class representatives,” sue on behalf of themselves and other people who have similar claims. Together, this group of people is called a “class” or “class members.” The class representative and the class members together are called the “Plaintiffs.” The companies they sue are called the “Defendants.” The judge or jury resolves the claims for everyone in the class—except those who ask to be excluded from the lawsuit.
Q:How Long Will This Case Take?
