Former, current police officers sue Lexington over retiree health benefits

Three retired and current Lexington police officers have filed a lawsuit in federal court alleging that the city is violating their constitutional rights by not contributing 100 percent of the cost of retiree health insurance premiums. The city stopped paying 100 percent as of Jan. 1. Retirees now have to pay about $200 a month.
