Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Eastern District of Michigan at Detroit.
No. 2:18-cv-13212—Nancy G. Edmunds, District Judge.
Argued: November 10, 2020
Decided and Filed: November 16, 2020
Before: SUTTON, THAPAR, and READLER, Circuit Judges.
SUTTON, Circuit Judge. Donna Zirbel received a $351,000 retirement-benefits payment
from Ford Motor Company. But the payment was two sizes too big. When Ford learned of the
mistake, it asked for the extra money back. Zirbel refused. She sued Ford, seeking a declaration
that she could keep the money. Ford stood by its decision. The district court granted summary
judgment to Ford, requiring Zirbel to return the $243,000 in overpayments. We affirm.
