Marshall v. Anderson Excavating & Wrecking, No. 17-1887 (8th Cir. 2018)Annotate this Case
Plaintiffs filed suit against Anderson Excavating under 29 U.S.C. 185(a), 29 U.S.C. 1132, and 29 U.S.C. 1145, requesting that the district court order Anderson Excavating to pay the contributions it allegedly owed to the Welfare Plan and Pension Plan, along with interest, liquidated damages, and attorneys' fees and costs.
The Eighth Circuit held that the district court erred in determining damages for unpaid contributions, prejudgment interest, liquidated damages, and attorneys' fees; the district court legally erred in applying the alter ego doctrine to justify an award of unpaid contributions for an alleged employee's work; and thus the court reversed the judgment of the district court and remanded for further proceedings.
