Koval v. Washington County Redevelopment Authority, No. 08-2492

In a dispute involving the revocation of a retirement health plan, district court judgment is affirmed where it properly dismissed plaintiff's suit for lack of subject matter jurisdiction as defendant is a political subdivision of Pennsylvania, and thus, its benefit plan constitutes a governmental plan exempt from ERISA under 29 U.S.C. sec. 1003(b)(1).
