Here’s a news item from The Associated Press: MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — A proposed settlement between the University of Idaho and 268 former employees over changes to their insurance benefits could finish a long-simmering legal fight between the two sides. The retirees filed a notice of appeal with the Idaho Supreme Court earlier this year after a district judge in February upheld his decision to throw out their lawsuit against the university. But litigation in the case would end as part of an agreement that the state Board of Education recently approved. A 2nd District Court judge will consider details of the settlement July 12. The case stems from a tort claim four retirees filed in December 2007 saying the university violated early retirement agreements signed in 1999 and 2002.
