Fido Bites The Hand That Feeds Him

Fidelity Investments EMPLOYEES are suing FIDELITY for breach of fiduciary duty by repeatedly adding "high-fee, actively-managed Fidelity mutual funds" with "little or no track record" to the Fidelity 401(k) plan.  Do I really need to explain how funny this is?  

The lead plaintiff and former employee, Lori Bilewicz, invested in the Fidelity Freedom 2040 fund within the Fidelity 401(k).  The class-action complaint by 26 current and former employees relates closely to my most popular blog post of all time from 2/15/2012: Fidelity Freedom Funds Aren't "Free" But Are "Dumb".  I would suppose any 401(k) plan using the Fidelity Freedom Funds will be interested in the outcome of this lawsuit.
