Watch This Space

According to the Department of Justice website, the Oregon Supreme Court will release its decision in the Moro et al v. State of Oregon case tomorrow at 10 a.m..  For those who don’t pay attention to court titles, that is the case we’ve all been waiting to hear about.  This is the case pertaining to the Legislative modification of the PERS COLA and elimination of the income tax subsidy for those not residing in Oregon.  This has been one of the longer-awaited opinions.

So, watch this space tomorrow for a quick posting about the decision and for possibly a longer analysis of what the opinion means.  Unless the case is an outright slam dunk for the defendants (State of Oregon and others), the implications will probably take some time to figure out.  

Stay tuned.

One small correction. The decision will be released at 8:00 AM rather than 10:00 AM.

Moro is out.

You predicted correctly, Mark. What I read is that COLA's have been reinstated for work performed before their 2013 transmutations. Income tax offset will not continue for those retirees not subject to Oregon's income tax
