Ind. Gov't. - Federal Court Upholds Plymouth’s Local Ordinance in DOJ Challenge

The City of Plymouth’s local ordinance calculating longevity pay for a police officer who was on leave for service in the Air Force Reserve has been upheld in a challenge by the Department of Justice. I'm told the case law out there dealing with the federal Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) is kind of sparse so it is a bit unique.

Here is the 9-page opinion from the ND Ind., Judge James T. Moody.

And here is a news release with the details, from Sean Surrisi, Plymouth City Attorney.
