FDPK’s Ellen Doyle and Joel Hurt filed the lawsuit in March 2008.  The lawsuit involved ERISA claims against the Regions Defendants made by participants in Regions’ In-House retirement plans and more than 450 customer plans for which the defendants provided trustee, custodial, investment advisory or investment management services.

The ERISA claims asserted by the In-House plan participants arose from allegedly imprudent plan investments in Regions Stock, Regions Morgan Keegan proprietaryMutual Funds and RMK Bond Funds. The claims asserted by the Customer Plans arose from investment in the RMK Bond Funds.

The ERISA settlement resolved claims by four Subclasses, three for the In-House Plans and one for the Customer Plans, which the Court preliminarily certified for settlement purposes. The settlement provides recovery of needed retirement funds for all class members.
