Federal – ERISA’s Statute of Limitations

FederalIntel Corporation Investment Policy Committee v. Sulyma, No. 18-1116, decided February 26, 2020. The U.S. Supreme Court held that for the purposes of the section of ERISA that requires plaintiffs with actual knowledge of an alleged fiduciary breach to file suit within three years of gaining that knowledge rather than within the six year period that would otherwise apply, a plaintiff does not have actual knowledge of the information contained in disclosures that he receives but does not read or cannot recall reading. The plaintiff must in fact have become aware of that information.
