Five adjuncts at Massachusetts community colleges have sued the state, saying that they meet the requirements for receiving health insurance from their institutions but are being denied coverage unfairly, The Boston Globe reported. The adjuncts -- backed by the faculty union for the community colleges -- hope to change the system for determining which instructors qualify for health insurance. State officials declined to comment on the suit.
