Preliminary Ruling Could Help UC Retirees Win Benefits
Last week, Superior Court Judge George Hernandez in Oakland issued a tentative ruling that could require the University of California to reinstate health care benefits for the UC Livermore Retirees Group. The group argues that during their careers as UC employees, the university made health care commitments and should be required to keep those commitments. The group lost their health benefits in 2008 after University management was replaced with a for-profit consortium and in 2010 filed a lawsuit to regain coverage.
