Romero I

On August 01, 2001, thirty-two employees of Allstate Insurance filed a class-action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The plaintiffs sued Allstate under the Age Employment in Discrimination Act of 1967 (AEDA) and the Employment Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). The plaintiffs, represented by private attorneys, sought declaratory, injunctive, and monetary relief. The case was initially assigned to Judge John P. Fullham.

Specifically, the plaintiffs alleged three legal issues. First, plaintiffs alleged that Allstate Insurance, under the guise of cost reduction, forced all of its benefits-receiving, salaried insurance agents into independent contractor positions contrary to Section 510 of ERISA. Second, plaintiffs alleged that Allstate Insurance changed their benefits because the company wanted to hire younger staff who they could pay less, contrary to the AEDA. Finally, plaintiffs alleged that the company violated its fiduciary duties by requiring the employees to either sign an agreement that converted their position to a contract or be fired. Allstate had terminated the employment contracts of more than 6,200 employees, 90 percent of whom were over the age of . Therefore, the plaintiffs sought to represent a class which includes the 6,200 former employees, to nullify the releases, and pursued a wide range of claims: for breach of contract, for violations of the ADEA, ADA, Title VII, and ERISA.

Romero II

About four months later, the Romero I plaintiffs and four others brought a separate ERISA action against Allstate. The plaintiffs in Romero II sought to represent a class of persons whose rights under ERISA were allegedly violated by the changes in the pension plan. The defendant responded that the claims were barred because they had the affirmative defense of release. They also counterclaimed against the plaintiffs for unjust enrichment, fraud, negligent misrepresentation, and breach of the duty of good faith and fair dealing based on state law.

On December 27, 2001, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EOCC) brought its own action against the defendant (EEOC v. Allstate), alleging that they unlawfully retaliated against the agents, in violation of the ADEA and other federal employment statutes, by refusing to permit them to continue as Allstate employees unless they signed the release. They sought declaratory judgment that the release was invalid.

Romero III

On December 20, 2003, twenty-five employees filed a separate suit in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. Plaintiffs alleged retaliation by Allstate Insurance, alleging frivolous counterclaims against the plaintiffs in Romero I.

Lastly, on October 7, 2004, the EEOC filed a suit against Allstate . Additionally, it filed a motion to intervene and to oppose Allstate's motion for summary judgment in Romero. This case would letter settle for $4,500,000 in September 2009.

In 2004, the district court dismissed Romero II claims, finding the complaints to be time-barred, and declared that the releases signed by former employees were voidable. 2004 WL 692231. The court additionally certified a class of agents who had signed the release for this purpose. However, in 2005 the Circuit reversed the opinion and remanded it back to the district court. 404 F.3d 212. The district court stated its intent to grant summary judgment in favor of Allstate in March 2007. 2007 WL 906158. The court also advised the parties that it was rethinking its previous ruling that the releases were voidable and that it believed the order should be vacated. On June 20, 2007, the district court granted Allstate's motion to dismiss for Romero II and motion for summary judgment for Romero I and found the previous declaration voiding the releases moot. 344 Fed.Appx. 785. However, this order was vacated and remanded by the Third Circuit in 2009. 344 Fed.Appx. 785.

On remand, the two cases were consolidated for administrative purposes (see the links below for notes on consolidation). Discovery followed for the next three years, and an amended complaint was filed in 2010. On January 29, 2010, the case was reassigned from Judge John P. Fullham to Judge Ronald L. Buckwalter. On September 12, 2012, the Court consolidated Romero I, Romero II, and EEOC v. Allstate for administrative purposes. The defendant filed a motion to dismiss that year, which the court denied. 2010 WL 4670172.

At the same time, the district court granted summary judgment to Allstate regarding the claims of retaliation in 2007, but the order was subsequently vacated on appeal and remanded back to a different district judge in 2009. 2007 WL 1811197; 344 Fed. Appx. 785. In a separate opinion on March 13, 2014, the District Court granted Allstate summary judgment in EEOC retaliation suit, holding that Allstate's claims were not facially retaliatory. 3 F Supp. 3d 313. EEOC appealed, and the Third Circuit affirmed on February 13, 2015. 778 F.3d 444.

On February 27, 2014, the court denied both parties' motions for summary judgment and directed that the issue regarding the validity of the release be decided by a jury. 1 F. Supp. 3d 319. Subsequently, on March 13, 2014, the court granted the defendant summary judgment on the EEOC's claim and dismissed that action in its entirety. 3 F. Supp. 3d 313. The decision was affirmed by the Third Circuit on March 26, 2015. Accordingly, the court granted Allstate's motion for partial summary judgment against the plaintiffs' ADEA disparate impact claims as well as against their ERISA Section 510 claims. 2017 WL 1508879; 251 F.Supp.3d 867.

Thereafter, class certification was sought for the issue of the validity of release on May 23, 2014, which was denied on October 04, 2014, stating that individual factors must be considered to determine whether each release signer entered into the release knowingly and voluntarily. 52 F.Supp.3d 715.

By 2015, after two appeals, over 400 additional agents intervened or became named plaintiffs in Romero I, and they filed a third amended complaint. The defendants attempted to dismiss the case again, and on November 15, 2015, the motion was denied. 143 F.Supp.3d 271. The case continued, and on June 17, 2015, the jury found that some plaintiffs signed their releases knowingly and voluntarily and while others did not sign their releases knowingly and voluntarily. On January 26, 2016, the court found that the releases were not procedurally nor substantively unconscionable. 158 F.Supp.3d 369.

The case was reassigned to Judge Gerald J. Pappert, and then to Judge Mark A. Kearney three months later. As there were 499 plaintiffs involved by this time, the court ordered the consolidation of the cases on May 05, 2016, and the parties filed a consolidated amended complaint maintaining their ADEA and ERISA retaliation claims.

The court also created a schedule for the resolution of all claims: a non-jury trial in December 2016 regarding plan amendments under ERISA in phase I, and a second trial in May 2017 to resolve employee benefits under ERISA and ADEA in phase II and the disparate treatment claims under ADEA at a later date. On July 06, 2016, Judge Kearney reviewed the final consolidated complaint and dismissed the plaintiffs' retaliation claims under ADEA and ERISA, and state law claims. 2016 WL 3654265.

On December 5-6, 2016, the judge held bench trial for phase I. After the bench trial and before a ruling was to be issued, the vast majority of plaintiffs voluntarily dismissed in favor of private settlements. On April 27, 2017, the district court granted summary judgment in defendant's favor as to the ADEA disparate impact claim and ERISA section 510 claims. 251 F.Supp.3d 867.

On September 05, 2017, the court granted summary judgment in favor of the defendant regarding the retaliation claims, finding that the plaintiff failed to meet the burden of showing that the counterclaims were baseless. 2017 WL 3881217; 2017 WL 3881219. The same day, the court denied the defendant's motion for summary judgment, which argued breach of contract and fiduciary duty based on the release signed. 2017 WL 3881215.

On January 29, 2018, the court granted summary judgment in favor of the defendant on the plaintiff's claims that the counterclaims violated the ADEA and ERISA and denied the defendant's summary judgment on the additional claims of retaliation. 2018 WL 627116.

At this point, most of the plaintiffs involved settled privately except 31 individuals. Settlement talks continued for the remaining plaintiffs. Although the defendant attempted to argue that the statute of limitations had passed since the initial complaint, the court tolled the statute of limitations on May 08, 2018. The defendant then moved for partial summary judgment on the state law claims of twelve employees who did not bring their state law claims until 2010 or 2015, arguing that they were barred by Pennsylvania's statute of limitations. On May 22, 2018, the district court denied the defendant's statute of limitations argument and the motion for summary judgment. 2018 WL 2325405.

According to the status report dated October 31, 2018, all but three plaintiffs had privately settled. That same the same day, the court granted complete dismissal of the case upon agreement of counsel.
