From New York Post:

A lawsuit by a good-government group seeking the names and annual pensions of New York City Police Pension Fund retirees was quashed by a panel of three Appellate Division judges yesterday, setting up a battle in the state’s highest court.

“If allowed to stand, this decision will be a massive blow to open government and transparency in New York,” said Timothy Hoefer, director of the Albany-based Empire Center.
