Rhode Island Broth. Of Officers v. Rhode Island.

U.S. District Court



Rhode Island Broth. Of Officers v. Rhode Island, 264 F.Supp.2d 87 (D.R.I. 2003). A state corrections officers union sued a state and officials, challenging a statute that amended the method of compensating officers who amassed education credits, from a percentage of pay to a flat rate. The district court entered summary judgment in favor of the state. The court held that the change in the compensation formula did not violate the takings clause, and that the statute did not constitute a contract breach. The court noted that the state gave corrections employees sufficient notice of termination of the collective bargaining agreement, when the legislature considered and passed the statute that changed the method of compensation.
