Delphi salaried retirees happy over latest court ruling in battle to restore pensions

Posted: Updated:

NILES, Ohio - Delphi salaried retirees are pleased with the latest action in their legal fight to get their pensions restored.

A federal judge in Detroit has denied a request from the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation that the judge reconsider her order that the PBGC release documents the retirees hope will prove that they were unfairly treated during the auto bailout.

A deadline has not been set pending another appeal by the PBGC.

"We're very pleased because it has taken one of the possibilities off the table. The PBGC now has one chance left but they're appealing to the judge that had originally required full discovery to begin with so we're pretty confident how this is going to come out," said Bruce Gump of the Delphi Salaried Retirees Association.

A congressional hearing will be held next week to examine the inspector general's report that found the Treasury Department played a key role in the deal.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on Government Operations chair says it's a role the Obama administration has denied.
