The court dismissed the PBGC’s third appeal of federal
Judge Loretta Preska’s decision for lack of appellate

the Circuit Court for Discovery and trial.
The AFPAE has been fighting for their pensions for over 10 years now, since Pan Am went out of business in 1991 ? arguing that the PBGC cannot be both the trustee and insurer of the pension plans.

to a conflict of interests – a fiduciary must act in the
sole interest of the plan participants while an insurance
company must act in the interests of the bottom line.
