Where plaintiffs in an ERISA action failed to plead a plausible breach of prudence by the trustee defendants, the district court properly dismissed the plaintiffs’ duty-to-monitor claims because the claims could not survive without a sufficiently pleaded theory of an underlying breach.
Judgment is affirmed.
