District Court of Appeal, Second District, Division 3, California.

Laurence M. HARRISON et al., Plaintiffs and Respondents, v. CITY OF LONG BEACH, a municipal corporation, Defendant and Appellant.

Civ. 20338.

Decided: July 06, 1954

Irving M. Smith, City Atty., Clifford E. Hayes, Dep. City Atty., Long Beach, for appellant. Kenneth Sperry, Long Beach, for respondents.

Plaintiffs, 10 in number, recovered judgment for money and for declaratory relief such as was granted in Combs v. City of Long Beach, Cal.App., 272 P.2d 880. Five of the plaintiffs are retired members of the Police or Fire Departments of the City of Long Beach; three are widows of deceased members of one or the other of the departments; two are minor children of a deceased member of the Fire Department.

The city has appealed urging only those grounds of appeal which were urged in English v. City of Long Beach, Cal.App., 272 P.2d 875, and which were held to be untenable.

For the reasons stated in English v. City of Long Beach, the judgment is affirmed.

SHINN, Presiding Judge.

PARKER WOOD, J., concurs.
