Court Denies Summary Judgment in MassMutual ERISA Litigation in Important Victory for Retirement Plans

On May 20, 2014, the Honorable Patti B. Saris, Chief Judge of the United States Disctrict Court for the District of Massachusetts denied Defendant's Motion for Summary Judgment in Golden Star, Inc. v. Mass Mutual Life Insurance Co., Civil Action No. 3:11-CV-30235-PBS (D.Mass.). In so holding, the Court specifically found that MassMutual was a fiduciary with respect to so-called revenue sharing payments because it retained the discretion to set its own compensation and treated revenue sharing payments as a form of compensation.
