Federal judge dismisses class-action pension suit

U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch of Denver (left) has handed Gannett an important victory, granting a summary judgement dismissing claims by three KUSA-TV employees that GCI’s pension plan changes in 1998 discriminated on the basis of age. I’m still waiting for one of the employee attorneys to respond to my message, seeking an update on the class-action lawsuit filed in December 2003. It’s conceivable that the employees will appeal Matsch’s six-page decision, on July 1. But we’ll have to wait for their attorneys to make that call. (The case is Civil Action No. 03-cv-02671-RPM.)
