Labor Dept. sues Columbia practice over 401(k)

The U.S. Department of Labor said Friday that it is suing a Columbia medical practice for allegedly failing to forward more than $100,000 in employee contributions and loan repayments to a 401(k) retirement plan.

The agency said its Employee Benefits Security Administration found that Pulmonary Disease & Critical Care Associates, its owner, Dr. David O. Nyanjom, and practice administrator Laura Nyanjom did not remit $103,630 in payments between November 2006 and April 2012. Employees of the practice and of Patuxent Hospitalists participated in the plan, the agency said.

Neither the practice nor the Nyanjoms could be reached for comment Friday.

The complaint, filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, seeks restitution, including lost opportunity costs. The Labor Department also requested the court appoint an independent fiduciary to administer or close out the retirement plan.
