St. Peter's Appellate Rehearing Denied
You may remember (you certainly should!) that back in January, Saint Peter's announced that they had filed to request that the entire Third Circuit re-hear the appeal that a three-judge panel had previously denied. On Friday, March 18, the Third Circuit denied Saint Peter's request for a rehearing. Today, the Third Circuit sent the case back to the New Jersey District Court for a decision, which will presumably go against Saint Peter's. It will be interesting to see what Saint Peter's does next; plainly they do not intend to run the pension plan as an ERISA plan.
