"Firefighters convinced the judge in Redwood City that the district had not, as it claimed, increased a health-care premium deduction in December 2008 for coverage that began in January 2009. The disputed deduction happened in three Decembers, through 2011, firefighter John Wurdinger told the Almanac." Wasn't the judge convinced of the opposite: that the district HAD increased a health care premium deduction early? If they had not increased a deduction from employees pay, how could they owe them anything? It seems likely that the district began deducting the higher amount a month before the premium actually went up, and if so, good for the firefighters to sue. There is nothing more irritating than employers stonewalling knowing that the claim will likely go away since the $ are fairly small. Stick it to The Man.

Most interesting that someone had the firefighter's article about getting overcharged and going to small claims court removed. So much for objective reporting
