The U.S. Supreme Court has decided against hearing appeals of two decisions involving employee benefits issues.
The court refused to take up an appeal in Rohm and Haas Pension vs. Williams.
In the Rohm and Haas case, a 3-judge panel at the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a district court decision in favor of a pension plan member, Gary Williams.
Williams had argued that his plan should have included a cost-of-living adjustment in a lump-sum distribution from the plan.
