Among other things, Stull, Stull & Brody is investigating whether fiduciaries of the National City 401(k) plans may have violated the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”) by failing to disclose the Company’s true operating condition to participants and beneficiaries of the plans (including disclosures relating to National City’s subprime operations and the reliability of the Company’s reported financial information), by offering National City stock as an investment option under the plans when it was not prudent to do so, and/or by allowing an imprudent overconcentration of Company stock in at least one of the Company’s 401(k) plans.
