Harris v. County of Orange, 13-56061

Reinstated claims brought by retired county employees alleging that the county government violated their vested rights when it restructured its health benefits program. The class-action complaint challenged two reforms made by the county in 2006 that the retirees said violated the county's contractual obligations to them. On appeal, the Ninth Circuit held that the district court erred in dismissing certain of retirees' contract claims. However, the panel affirmed dismissal of the retirees' age discrimination claim.
