Judge Throws Out Halifax Co. Retired Teachers' Lawsuit

Posted:

Halifax Co., VA - Several retired teachers in Halifax County had their day in court Monday, but the judge threw out their case.

More than 100 retirees filed suit against the school system for eliminating the Local Option Retirement Plan, known as LORP.

The plan offered incentives and benefits for teachers to retire early, but it was axed last year without warning.

Some of the plaintiffs say they are planning to file individual suits for breach of contract after the judge said that would be a better course of action.
