Court sets first hearing in pension lawsuit for June 30



One day before the 3 percent pay cut from teachers, police and state workers takes effect, Leon District Court Judge Jackie Fulford has set the hearing for lawsuit filed by three unions.

The Florida Education Association filed the action on Monday, and as joined by unions for police and service workers, alleging that the law that cut payroll for teachers and other workers to serve as a contribution to their pension funds was unconstitutional. More here.

The one hour hearing is scheduled for June 30 from 7:30 a.m. - 8:30 a.m. in the Leon County Courthouse. Here's a link to the lawsuit and other documents.
