We've received a copy of San Francisco Superior Court Judge Charlotte Woolard's ruling that State Compensation Insurance Fund employees are exempt from furloughs. Click here to read it.
The order, which relies on state insurance code specific to State Fund employees, is silent on back pay. SEIU Local 1000, which filed the suit, said in a statement today that it will "vigorously pursue retroactive back pay with interest for its members."
The governor's office has said the administration will appeal, but fund employees will be off furlough while that plays out.
"We have shared the order with the State Controller's Office," State Fund spokeswoman Jennifer Vargen said. "They are reviewing it, and we will work with them on implementing it."
We're waiting to hear from the local for a comment on its win.
