CNH Industrial N.V. v. Reese

Pending petition
Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
17-515 6th Cir. TBD TBD TBD TBD TBD

Issue: Whether the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit misinterpreted the Supreme Court's decision in M & G Polymers USA, LLC v. Tackett, thus creating a conflict with the decisions of other circuits and within the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit itself, by employing rules of contract interpretation explicitly repudiated in Tackett to deem a general duration clause in the collective bargaining agreement ambiguous, and then using extrinsic evidence to hold the healthcare benefits of the retiree class vested for life.
