A Kanawha County judge threw out a lawsuit filed against the state's Public Employees Insurance Agency, its finance board, and the state auditor by 50 of West Virginia's 55 county school boards. The boards want the state to have sole responsibility for funding retiree health-care costs. They said their liabilities ranged from $36,000 a year to nearly $1.1 million. The judge ruled that most of the counties issues involve the legislature, not the PEIA.
