The city loses the first set of lawsuits from its various labor unions. This shows that the city's unilateral decisions, in this case to rescind benefits, don't hold up in a court of law. Money that was "saved" in the FY2009-2010 budget will now have to be applied and then some to the current FY2010-2011 budget. So much for the city thinking that it is above the law.
