CalPERS May Prevail Despite Bankruptcy Judge's Warning in City of Stockton, California That Failure to Impair Public Pension Obligations May Constitute "Unfair Discrimination" in Plan of Adjustment

This case is pending before Chief Judge Christopher M. Klein in the Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of California (Case No. 12-32118-C-9)
