Judge Finifter Increases Judgment in Retiree Subsidy Case to Include an Additional $200K

On April 17, 2014 Judge Finifter ruled on FOP Lodge #4’s motion to reconsider his judgment in the retiree subsidy case.  He issued an amended judgment and awarded prejudgment interest in the amount of $213,446.47.  This will increase the original award to an amended total of $1,626,567.28.

Judgment has now been entered in the case. Going forward interest will accrue at a post-judgment interest rate of 10%.

When this case began in 2008 the County’s reimbursement owed to the affected retirees was approximately $500,000.00.  It has now grown to over three times that amount and will have an accelerated cost with the reimbursement and interest growing monthly.

The County continues to be defiant and ignore the order of the Court.  A petition was filed by the FOP for contempt.  No Court date has been set.

Please call or e-mail County Executive Kevin Kamenetz at 410-887-2450 or e-mail him at Kevin@baltimorecountymd.gov  and/or call or e-mail County Administrative Officer Fred Homan at 410-887-2460 or e-mail him at fhoman@baltimorecountymd.gov. Tell them to pay as directed by the court and stop wasting taxpayer dollars on a case that has concluded.
