More than a dozen retired Albemarle County employees have re-filed a lawsuit claiming the county owes them big money.
The 13 workers chose to retire early because of extra benefits the county offered. Months after leaving their jobs they were told their benefits would be reduced due to a clerical error.
The retired Albemarle County employees say they want their money - now with interest - or they want their jobs back.
The group won the case in late 2011 but the county appealed. It was thrown out by the state Supreme Court on a technicality.
"We received a call from the attorney and the way it was explained to us was it was a correctable technical issue so the decision was made, if it's correctable, then we can re-file it and proceed from here," said Larry Claytor, plaintiff.
A county spokesperson says they have not yet had the opportunity to review the new lawsuit in detail, adding they remain confident that the county acted appropriately in this matter.
A circuit court clerk says they are still in the process of serving everyone involved in the case.
