Ruling in Retiree Subsidy Case

On November 5, 2013 Baltimore County Circuit Court Judge Finifter issued a ruling in the Retiree Subsidy case.  The ruling orders the County to reset the retiree health insurance split for each affected retiree that was in place at the time of his or her retirement and file written certification verifying compliance with the Clerk of the Circuit Court within 10 days.

Once this has been done, there will be a 60 day period of discovery to calculate the amount owed to each individual retiree.

If the County fails to comply with Judge Finifter’s November 5, 2013 order, the Fraternal Order of Police will pursue it’s motion for sanctions.

Baltimore County officer shoots man in Cockeysville

Baltimore County police are investigating an officer-involved shooting Saturday night in Cockeysville, in which police say a man with a knife was shot.

Police said they responded at 9:33 p.m. to a residence in the 10100 block of Daventry Drive, a residential area near the Yorktowne Plaza Shopping Center off of York Road.

Police said the call was for an assault in progress, and the 911 caller said there was a subject there threatening people with a knife. Upon arriving, officers found a man in the garage with a knife. Police said he refused to drop the knife, and an officer opened fire, striking him at least once. The man was taken to a hospital. His condition was not known as of early Sunday.

Homicide detectives were on the scene, which is customary in officer-involved shootings. The officer involved was placed on administrative duty while the incident is reviewed. No further information was available as of early Sunday.

 

 

Retiree Subsidy Case Update

On January 18, 2013 The Maryland Court of Appeals denied the “Motion for Reconsideration” that was filed by Baltimore County on December 7, 2012 in the Retiree Subsidy case. (Read the Decision under FOP NEWS LINKS) There are no other avenues for appeal by the County.

The Court of Appeals has issued an order to the Court of Special Appeals to reverse itself and AFFIRM the Baltimore County Circuit Court and Arbitrator’s decision in favor of the Fraternal Order of Police.  When that occurs we can then start working on returning the affected members who retired between February 1, 1992 and June 30, 2007  to their proper health care subsidy that was in place upon retirement and reimbursement for any overpayment.
