**RGJ VS. NEVADA PERS LAWSUIT**
The Nevada Supreme Court issued a ruling in this case on November 14, 2013. The Public Employees' Retirement System (PERS) notified retirees in late January of this year that they had to comply with one part of the order. The case was remanded back to the District Court level in Carson City for another hearing held April 11 where Judge Todd Russell concurred with the Supreme Court decision. It is possible this issue could be discussed during the 2015 session of the Nevada State Legislature scheduled to convene February 2 in Carson City. While names and pension amounts of existing retirees is available online the RGJ is seeking additional information that RPEN continues to object to.
