Chapter 7 debtor dissolved under State law held responsible for ERISA plan

A company liquidated in bankruptcy and dissolved under state law maintains responsibility for an ERISA plan if it continues to make pay-outs in the company name  The 11th Circuit has interpreted ERISA to require such defunct company’s affiliates to back-stop such plan.  A timely PBGC take-over would have mitigated this result.
