Collective Action Appeal - School District

When a school district increased the deductible its retirees were required to pay under their health insurance, the retirees sued, contending that the change violated the Michigan Constitution's prohibition on changing public retirees' "accrued financial benefits," and the retirees' contractual rights. We filed an amicus brief that helped convince the Michigan Supreme Court to reject the retirees' claims and hold that public bodies are free to reduce the benefits they provide retirees.
