Baltimore County Appeals Pension Ruling

A federal judge grants the county permission to seek an appeal while the damages phase of the trial continues.

Baltimore County will appeal a federal judge's ruling in October that found pension rules that charge some county employees different rates are discriminatory.

At issue is an October ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Benson Everett Legg that found that the county's pension rules requiring different contribution rates from employees based on age violates the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967.

That ruling came after a federal appeals court overturned Legg's original ruling that was in favor of the county.

The county asked Legg for permission to seek an appeal on his current ruling while the trial enters the damages phase. The county argued in a filing that it would need as long as two years to review as many as 10,000 pension records.

County officials have been adamant in their opposition to Legg's October ruling.

"We're going to fight this until there is no one else to fight," said Don Mohler, a county spokesman, during an October interview.

When you learn respect of others then I'll render respect to you. I have tried many times in dealing with you. You just keep coming back with the wisecracks. I have posted some of your comments so others can see what I deal with. You want to be a man or then act like one. I don't ever recall you commenting on anything constructive. It's always the wisecracks towards me. After almost two years you act like a child, you will treated as such.

THANX Buzz for your attention to details. The County is out of control in spending taxpayers money, there is a LACK of leadership (KK can put a stop to some of this stuff) in wasting our tax dollars in all these appeals.He promised to do just that but it never came about.
