(Associated Press) A state appeals court has revived a lawsuit by retired employees of the University of California’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory over UC’s decision in 2008 to switch their health insurance to a private plan that covered less and cost more.

The court reversed an Alameda County judge’s decision to dismiss the suit.
