Florida Retirement Appeal
The Florida Supreme Court will hear the states appeal of a judges ruling that struck down a requirement for public employees to contribute to their pensions.
The high court voted 5-2 yesterday to take the case setting oral argument for September 5.
The law requires public employees to contribute three percent of their pay to the Florida Retirement System.
That includes teachers, state and county employees and some city workers.
A Tallahassee judge sided with labor unions that challenged the law, ruling it violate employees' property, contract and collective bargaining rights.
The 1st District Court of Appeal sent the case to the supreme court without making its own ruling over the states objection.
