San Francisco's 1st District Court of Appeal has set Aug. 3 at 9 a.m. to hear arguments in California Attorneys, Administrative Law Judges and Hearing Officers in State Employment v. Schwarzenegger.
This is the third of three key lawsuits in which Alameda Superior Court Judge Frank Roesch decided that employees in so-called "special fund" departments had been illegally furloughed.
Three-judge panels in the same appellate court have entirely or partially overturned Roesch decisions in the other two cases.
