Judge Halts Furloughs for Some State Employees
Alameda County Superior Court Judge Rank Roesch on Wednesday issued a tentative ruling that state employees whose salaries come from sources other than the state's General Fund cannot be subject to furloughs. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) ordered furloughs as a way to address the state's budget deficit, and the administration plans to appeal the ruling.
