Davis v. City of Greensboro, 13-1820

In this unpaid wages action, plaintiff police officers and firefighters brought separate suits against defendant-city. Denial of motions to dismiss is affirmed, where: 1) the orders denying defendant’s motions to dismiss plaintiffs’ contract and estoppel claims on governmental immunity grounds constitute final orders subject to interlocutory review under the collateral order doctrine, and this court therefore has jurisdiction; and 2) the district court properly denied the motions to dismiss because plaintiffs have sufficiently alleged that they have valid contracts for longevity pay with defendant, and thus defendant cannot prevail on its governmental immunity defense.
