Amara v. CIGNA Corp., 348 Fed. Appx. 627, 47 EBC 2709 (2d Cir. 2009) [2009 BL 219789]
[EDITOR'S NOTE: This case is unpublished as indicated by the issuing court.] Appeal from a judgment of the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut (Kravitz, J.).
UPON DUE CONSIDERATION, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED, ADJUDGED AND DECREED that the judgment of the district court be AFFIRMED.
Stephen R. Bruce, Allison C. Pienta, Stephen R. Bruce Law Offices, Washington, D.C.; Thomas G. Moukawsher, Moukawsher & Walsh, LLC, Hartford, CT, for Plaintiffs.
Joseph J. Costello, Jeremy P. Blumenfeld, Jamie M. Kohen, Morgan, Lewis, & Bockius LLP, Philadelphia, PA, for Defendants.
PRESENT: DENNIS JACOBS, Chief Judge, AMALYA L. KEARSE, CHESTER J. STRAUB, Circuit Judges.
We assume the parties' familiarity with the underlying facts, the procedural history, and the issues presented for review.
 In this ERISA appeal, the parties cross-appeal from two decisions of the district court. Plaintiffs-appellants argue that the district court erred in:
1) concluding that it lacked the authority to provide complete relief for defendants-appellees' ERISA violations;
2) failing to require prior benefit provisions to be reinstated until proper notice of reductions was provided;
3) failing to require CIGNA to pay comparable benefits to affected participants until proper notice was provided; and
4) ruling that CIGNA did not need to disclose the amendment to the "Rehire Rule."
Defendants-appellees cross-appeal, arguing that the district court erred by awarding plaintiffs-appellants more pension benefits than they were told they would receive under the pension plan. They also contend that the district court properly denied plaintiffs-appellants' request for additional annual benefit accruals.
We affirm the judgment of the district court for substantially the reasons stated in Judge Kravitz's two well-reasoned and scholarly opinions. See Amara v. CIGNA Corp., 559 F.Supp.2d 192 (D.Conn. 2008); Amara v. Cigna Corp., 534 F.Supp.2d 288 (D.Conn. 2008).
Based on the foregoing reasons, we hereby AFFIRM the judgment of the district court.
