The University of Idaho has reached a settlement with more than 250 of its retirees, who sued the university over changes in their medical and life insurance benefits, KLEW News reported. The retirees claimed in their suit that the university had agreed not to change the benefits, but a judge rejected that view, saying that the university did have the right to make changes. Under the settlement, the retirees are assured that their health insurance premiums will not increase by more than 10 percent in any year for the rest of their lives.
