California Supreme Court hears furlough case

September 8, 2010 |  9:27 am

Dozens of cases about the legality of state worker furloughs have been filed since Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger implemented the mandatory days off for public employees last year.

At long last, one of those cases has found its way to the state Supreme Court. At issue is whether  Schwarzenegger overstepped his powers when he ordered unpaid days off for more than 200,000 state workers.

You can listen to the oral arguments here.
