SJCERA retirees Edward Allum and Pauline Toy ("Plaintiff Retirees") sued SJCERA and its Board of Retirement in San Joaquin County Superior Court, on behalf of a class of similarly situated retirees ("post-'82 Retirees"), alleging that SJCERA breached a 2001 class action settlement agreement. The Superior Court granted SJCERA's and cross-defendant County of San Joaquin's Motions for Summary Judgment in their entirety (Trial Court Order). The Third District Court of Appeal upheld the Superior Court's ruling (Court of Appeal Order), and the California Supreme Court denied the Plaintiff Retirees' petition for review. SJCERA separately successfully sued Travelers for its attorneys' fees incurred in the Allum litigation.
