San Diego Union-Tribune

The state Supreme Court upheld Monday the city of San Diego’s right to shrink health care benefits for retired workers, closing the door on legal challenges to 2012 labor pacts projected to save taxpayers more than $700 million over the next 25 years.

“This landmark decision is great news for the people of San Diego because it upholds a key reform that will save taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars,” said Mayor Kevin Faulconer, praising City Attorney Jan Goldsmith for successfully litigating the case.
