Fifth Circuit Affirms Order Denying Motion to Compel Arbitration in Employee Pension Plan Dispute

Originally published by Beth Graham.

The United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit has issued an unpublished opinion stating an accounting firm may not compel a group of hospital workers’ claims over an allegedly underfunded pension plan to arbitration. In Jones v. Singing River Health Servs. Found., et al., No. 16-60263 (5th Cir., January 5, 2017), an accounting firm, KPMG, performed a multiyear financial audit for an employee pension plan sponsored by a hospital, Singing River Health Services (“SRHS”).
