Dolan v. King County

King County Public Defenders
Denied Pensions

Kevin Dolan was a public defender paid through a nonprofit corporation to perform indigent legal defense services for King County.  He and others in his situation are entitled to membership and benefits in the Public Employees Retirement System (PERS), but King County failed to report him and others the the Department of Retirement Systems (DRS) and failed to make retirement contributions to DRS.  The Washington Supreme Court ruled in favor of the King County public defenders and held they are entitled to pensions.

Non-Permanent
State Employee Health Benefits
