In Varity Corp. v. Howe, the United States Supreme Court held that section 502(a)(3) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 ("ERISA") authorizes an award of relief to an individual for a breach of fiduciary duty by the administrator of an employee benefit plan covered by ERISA and affirmed the relief awarded.
