Status of our Fight for our Pensions

Today, we are closer than ever to winning our case.  We remain united, confident, and more determined than ever to see justice prevail in our legal battle.
For more than seven years, U.S. taxpayer-paid government lawyers have taken advantage of every procedural roadblock the law allows in an effort to keep from us emails and other evidence that are relevant proving to our case.
Our legal team has won and reviewed – from the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, U.S. Treasury Department, and other sources – more than 100,000 documents totaling over a million pages.  Virtually every ruling by Federal judges in Detroit, Cincinnati, and Washington over this time has supported our request for transparency so we can gain the evidence we need to have our “day in court.”
The most recent – and highly notable – ruling was made by U.S. District Judge Emmett G. Sullivan in Washington on April 13, 2017.  His Opinion and Order required that we be given 63 documents that the government sought to keep from us under the assertion of “presidential communication privilege.”
