DJ UPDATE: IBM Pension Settlement Leaves Unresolved Issues

(IBM) by former employees reached a milestone on Wednesday with the announcement of a big legal settlement. But the move doesn't resolve a number of key issues surrounding the case.

The other is how to fix longstanding problems surrounding cash-balance plans.
