Finally, we have a date and time for the hearings on the White case. Plan to be at the Multnomah County Courthouse by 9:00 a.m. on Friday June 5, 2009. At this event both sides will get a chance to present their arguments. Since this case has been in the "mill" so to speak since 2004, it might be entertaining to watch as Judge Kantor tries to understand this case. Apparently he thought it was going to be an easy case for him last year, but decided after canceling the earlier hearings to reschedule them afterall. In a followup post, I will explain the issues involved in White. Suffice it to say right now that White challenges PERS' right to enter into the settlement agreement in the City of Eugene case (remember that one?) without involving one of the parties to be affected by the settlement (the members).
Please don't post your comments more than once. I moderate all comments and a delay between posting and appearing is part of the drill here. I get to all comments in due time. Please don't continually repost the same comment. Only one will be posted. Thank you.
