NEENAH, Wis. (AP) - A Winnebago County judge has dismissed a class-action lawsuit in which more than 250 Neenah teachers sought to recover more than $61 million in post-retirement benefits.
A Post-Crescent Media report says the judge ruled that a school district can't be targeted by a class-action suit.
Judge Karen L. Seifert said she would only consider claims filed by people who included itemized lists of the relief they sought.
Of the 261 people named in the suit, only two had filed the required paperwork. Seifert dismissed the other 259 claims.
The 261 teachers claimed they were promised benefits that were taken away without notice.
The Neenah district scaled back its retirement plans under Act 10, which limits most public unions' bargaining to base wage increases.
