U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Meredith Jury on Friday dismissed CalPERS' request that she certify the pension giant's direct appeal to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a decision that San Bernardino officials have said will save the city time and money in its already sprawling fight with CalPERS.


San Bernardino officials argued that being in front of a separate panel of judges would interfere with the mediation that begins Nov. 25. They also say that CalPERS is attempting to make the bankruptcy as difficult as possible for San Bernardino to discourage other cities from putting off pension payments through bankruptcy.
