#18-49 Alameda County Deputy Sheriff’s Assn. v. Alameda County Employees’ Retirement Assn., S247095. (A141913; 19 Cal.App.5th 61, mod. 19 Cal.App.5th 945a; Contra Costa County Superior Court; MSN121870.) Petition for review after the Court of Appeal affirmed in part and reversed in part the judgment in a civil action. This case includes the following issue: Did statutory amendments to the County Employees’ Retirement Law (Gov. Code, § 31450 et seq.) made by the Public Employees’ Pension Reform Act of 2013 (Gov. Code, § 7522 et seq.) reduce the scope of the pre-existing definition of pensionable compensation and thereby impair employees’ vested rights protected by the contracts clauses of the state and federal Constitutions?
