Clients U.A. Local 38 Pension Trust Fund Trustees

Jones Day represented the U.A. Local 38 Pension Trustees in an action involving reallocating pension and other assets. Following a five-year investigation, the U.S. Department of Labor sued the U.A. Local 38 pension trustees for imprudently "reallocating" $70 million in pension and other ERISA trust fund assets to the Konocti Harbor Resort and Spa. All claims involving the U.A. Local 38 trustees were dismissed with prejudice pursuant to a consent order agreed to in 2007. The trustees denied any wrongdoing and none of the trustees paid any money in settling this dispute.
