JERSEY, ET AL. NEW JERSEY STATE FIREFIGHTERS'
MUTUAL BENEVOLENT ASSOCIATION ET AL. VS. STATE OF
NEW JERSEY ET AL.
In these consolidated appeals, plaintiffs, who
represent state and local public employees in collective
negotiations with public employers, challenge the
constitutionality of three laws: L. 2010, c. 1, which made
changes to State-administered retirement systems; L. 2010,
c. 2, which made changes to eligibility requirements for
and benefits provided through the State Health Benefits
Program (SHBP) and School Employees' Health Benefits
Program (SEHBP); and L. 2010, c. 3, which made changes to
other public employee benefits. We reject plaintiffs'
constitutional challenges and affirm the trial court's
dismissal of plaintiffs' complaints for failure to state a
claim upon which relief can be granted. 01/31/14
