Judge: Visalia Not Obligated To Cover Retiree Health Care
Tulare County Judge Patrick O'Hara sided with the city of Visalia over whether it was required to fully cover health insurance to retired city employees. The retirees had argued that the city had promised to cover their health insurance, yet they pay $211 monthly for insurance, plus extra for spouses. The retirees could appeal the decision to the 5th District Court of Appeal.
