Today the Baltimore County FOP Lodge #4 filed an Petition for an Order of Constructive Civil Contempt in Baltimore County Circuit Court against Baltimore County Government, County Executive Kevin Kamenetz and Budget Director Keith Dorsey.
Baltimore County has refused to comply with any of the requirements of the order (read the order) issued by Circuit Court Judge Finifter on August 14, 2013.
The FOP has maintained that members who retired between February 1, 1992 and June 30, 2007 should not have had their health care subsidies changed. The County disagreed and the parties went to arbitration in July 2008 where the FOP prevailed. Since that time the County has been unsuccessful at every level of appeal.
