If the San Bernardino County Employees Retirement Association (SBCERA) was considering appealing last weeks decision by a superior court judge that sided with the Press-Enterprise newspaper in seeking the release of retiree pension data, it had better think again.

The first challenge to rulings in favor of releasing pension data was decided by the 3rd District Court of Appeal last week.

That decision ordered Sacramento County to release retiree pension data to local media.

Look forward to some fireworks on the San Bernardino County disclosure numbers.

The Press-Enterprise is seeking the list of all retirees with annual pensions of $90,000 and higher.
