Whitney Main, et al., v. American Airlines, Inc., et al.,Case No. 4:16-cv-00473-
District Court for The Northern District of Texas
The Class Representatives claim that, during the Class Period, Defendants violated ERISA by offering American Beacon Funds in the Plan to the exclusion of more prudent alternative funds managed by investment managers not affiliated with American Airlines or American Beacon and by offering mutual funds rather than other forms of investment products. In the Settlement, “American Beacon Funds” means mutual funds in the Plan’s lineup managed in whole or in part by American Beacon or its affiliates or subsidiaries. Nothing in the Settlement Agreement is an admission or concession on Defendants’ part of any fault or liability whatsoever.
