Court Weighs Release of Nevada Retirement Records

Posted: Updated:

The Nevada Supreme Court is weighing whether the Public Employee Retirement System should be compelled to release the names and benefits of retired public workers as sought by a Reno newspaper.
 
Lawyers for the Reno Gazette-Journal and PERS (http://on.rgj.com/17LWEn3 ) made their arguments to the high court Tuesday. 

The newspaper sued PERS in 2011 after it declined to provide a complete list of retirees and their benefits.
 
The records request followed an investigative report in the Gazette-Journal that highlighted the number of public employees who "double dip" by collecting a pension from the state while continuing to work for a public body in Nevada.
 
The case went to the high court after PERS appealed a December 2011 ruling by lower court judge who held in favor of the newspaper.
