Judge: No Injunction In Firefighter Lawsuit

A judge declined to issue an injunction in a firefighters' union lawsuit against the city of Lexington over a health care plan.
A judge on Monday refused to issue an injunction against Lexington's health care plan for city workers.

The firefighters' union is suing Lexington over the plan, which has outraged many city workers because of proposed increases in premiums. The union's suit says the city failed to create a benefits advisory committee to recommend the change, as required by contract.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that Judge Pamela Goodwine declined to issue an injunction, saying the union had failed to prove immediate harm if the health care plan went forward.
