Retiree Healthcare: We filed the Third Amended Complaint on January 13, 2016. The City's and Funds' responses/answers are due in March. We filed a motion for summary judgment, in the view that the facts, as stated in our complaint, are substantially undisputable and entitled us to judgment, as a matter of law. Judge Cohen entered that motion, but refused to require responses until he’s dealt with another round of the motions to dismiss. Click here to read the transcript of the hearing on March 18, 2016.
