Judge says Flint can make changes to health benefits for retirees

Posted: Updated:
FLINT (WJRT) - (07/10/14) - It's been a battle in the quest to reduce Flint's budget.

Now, a federal judge says the city can make changes to health benefits for retirees to cut costs.

The decision came after emergency manager Darnell Early argued retiree health benefit costs could force the city into bankruptcy.

Former emergency manager Mike Brown tried to force retirees to pay a high share of healthcare costs, but six retirees sued.

The ruling was handed down at the end of June.
