Anheuser-Busch Cos. must pay nearly $52 million to resolve a lawsuit by about 800 former SeaWorld theme park workers who said they lost pension benefits when their company was sold off, a federal judge in Missouri ruled.
The final judgment calculating the beermaker’s liability comes two years after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit ruled that the SeaWorld workers were entitled to larger pensions under a plan provision governing changes in corporate control following Anheuser-Busch’s merger with InBev.
The $52 million owed by Anheuser-Busch includes mostly increased pension payments and interest. Judge Stephen M. Limbaugh Jr. of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri also ordered the beermaker to pay certain retirees higher monthly pension payments going forward, which will cost the beermaker more than $71,000 per month, Limbaugh said Sept. 27.
