Here’s a term you really don’t want used to describe your 401(k): “One of the most expensive plans in America.”  

That’s what law firm Nichols Kaster calls the $1.3 billion retirement plan at the center of a proposed class action against Fujitsu Technology and Business of America Inc. In a lawsuit filed recently in San Jose federal court, the attorneys alleged a cornucopia of fiduciary breaches tied to excessive fees, record keeping, and the components of the company’s target-date funds. The case, and several like it in the past year, may be harbingers of a new cycle of 401(k)-gone-bad litigation, this time targeting ever-smaller retirement plans.
