IMMUNITY - EX PARTE THE RETIREMENT SYSTEMS OF ALABAMA
Ex parte The Retirement Systems of Alabama, [Ms. 1140170, June 12, 2015] __ So. 3d __ (Ala. 2015). Of numerous claims brought against the RSA and others, only claims for prospective injunctive relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 survive. Several employees of the Alabama Public Education System brought a class action challenging how group health-insurance benefits are calculated. The opinion rejects numerous attempts to circumvent the sovereign immunity of § 14 of the Alabama Constitution, but the one claim for prospective injunctive relief survives.
