The union representing the state's legal professionals and Gov. Jerry Brown's administration have agreed to settle their furlough fight.
The deal returns wages lost to furlough to about 24 members of California Attorneys, Administrative Law Judges and Hearing Officers in State Employment. In exchange, the union is dropping its last two furlough lawsuits.
The agreement affects only CASE members in five departments that don't receive legislative budget appropriation: First 5 California, the Prison Industry Authority, the California Earthquake Authority, the California Housing Finance Agency and the California State Lottery.
SEIU Local 1000 recently agreed to a similar settlement.
