A lawsuit filed by the union demands County Executive Ike Leggett rewrite his budget because the proposed spending plan failed to include the results of binding arbitration.

Leggett responded saying he has the authority under collective bargaining law to propose whatever budget he sees fit. You recall back in February, members of that union stormed Leggett's office to protest changes to their health care and retirement benefits.

Judge Greenberg has multiple options in deciding the case, including directing the dispute to a labor relations administrator.
