Flint leaders say a federal court decision is threatening the city’s ability to recover financially.
Last week, a federal appeals court upheld a lower court ruling preventing the city from implementing cuts to retiree health care. The plan would make Medicare-eligible city retirees pay higher monthly premiums, co-pays and deductibles.
But the retirees sued.
Flint city leaders were hoping to reap $8.5 million over two years from the retiree health care cuts.
