District court judgment dismissing action to enforce divorce settlement provision for waiver of spouse-survivor benefits is vacated and remanded where plaintiff's claims should be resolved on the basis of state law principles rather than ERISA, as plaintiff's claims are under the group annuity contract rather than pension plans and annuities are not governed by ERISA.
