Nitro Police Chief Wins Court Case Against WV CPRB

I wanted to update a March 9, 2010 front page WV Gazette story by Rusty Marks. The headline read "Nitro Police Chief Drawing Pension and Pay"
There was much made by the fact Chief Jordan had retired in his rank of Captain from the Nitro Police Department. As a retired police officer he was entitled to the "pension" he had worked for over a career of close to 30 years. This was an outrage to some who felt he should not be able to draw his pension and then be allowed to hold employment and be compensated in his capacity as Chief.
This led to the WV Consolidated Public Retirement Board to issue a ruling that it was not allowed for a person retired from a police department to be allowed to contribute to PERS if they hold a position where the contribution was available.
Of course this was wrong not only for Chief Jordan but for others in his situation and on March 16, 2011 Judge Stucky made that clear.
By order of Judge Stucky entered on March 16, 2011 the court reversed the WV Consolidated Public Retirement Boards final order. A post judgement order by Judge Stucky awarded the petitioner Jack Jordan attorney's fees in the amount of $9,755.83.
I was so surprised to learn that there had been a decision. As there was no front page story about the final outcome. But then again the fact Rusty Marks would write a "hit piece" about Chief Jordan and not follow up when Chief Jordan is sucessful, is not so surprising.
I am glad for not only Chief Jordan but the thousands of individuals this would have affected if it had gone unchallenged.

Good for Jack Jordan. He worked for that pension and he earned it.
That he continues to work is irrelevant.
