PETITION FOR
WRIT OF MANDATE
Requa, et aI, v. Regents a/University a/California, et al.
PETITION FOR WRIT OF MANDATE PAGE 1
1 INTRODUCTION
2 1. This case is brought by former employees of the Regents of the University of
3 California ("Regents" or "University") who worked at the Lawrence Livermore National
4 Laboratory ("Livermore Lab"). For many years, the University managed the Livermore Lab,
5 which is widely considered one of the nation's premier defense research laboratories. While
6 Petitioners worked there, they were University employees, and the Regents treated them as
7 University employees for all purposes.
8 2. In the 1960s, the Regents first authorized University-provided medical benefits for
9 University employees and retirees, and the Regents have provided these benefits since then.
lOIn 2008, however, the Regents singled out retirees from the Livermore Lab and shifted
11 responsibility for providing their retiree medical benefits to a newly created private
12 consortium (that includes the Regents), known as Lawrence Livermore National Security
13 ("LLNS"). In so doing, the Regents impaired Petitioners' vested right to receive the same
14 University-provided retiree medical benefits as other University retirees in violation of the
15 Contract Clause of the California Constitution.
16 3. Since the Regents stopped providing retirees who worked at the Livermore Lab
17 with the same medical benefits as other University retirees and shifted responsibility for
18 providing their benefits to Petitioners have been significantly disadvantaged. The
19 benefits LLNS has provided have been inferior to those provided by the University.
20 Petitioners ask the Court to restore their vested right to University-provided health benefits
21 and to make them whole for losses suffered.
22 PARTIES
23 JOE REQUA
24 4. After Petitioner Joe Requa graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in
25 1961 with a degree in Engineering, he was hired by the University to work at the Lawrence
26 Berkeley Lab.
27
28
Requa, et ai, v. Regents 0/ University a/California, et al.
PETITION FOR WRIT OF MANDATE PAGE 2
1 5. When Requa began work in 1961, the University did not have its own retirement
2 system. Instead, University employees were members of the Public Employees' Retirement
3 System (PERS). Like other University employees, Requa was a member ofPERS.
4 6. During the 1961-62 and 1962-63 academic years, Requa continued to work at the
5 Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory and attended graduate school at UC Berkeley. In 1963, he
6 withdrew his retirement funds from PERS and moved to Illinois to continue his education. In
7 mid-1965, Requa returned to California and began working at the Lawrence Livermore Lab.
8 By that time, the University had established its own retirement system, known as the
9 University of California Retirement System (UCRS), and Requa became a member. UCRS
10 later became known as the University of California Retirement Plan (UCRP). Throughout his
11 career at the Livermore Lab, Requa was a University employee and was always treated like
12 one. Among other things, paycheck came from the University, and he was covered by the
13 University's Staff Personnel Policies and Procedures.
14 7. On or about October 30, 1999, Requa retired from the Livermore Lab as a
15 University employee. Since then, Requa's retirement checks have been (and still are) issued
16 by UCRP. In fact, neither Requa nor other retirees who worked at the Livermore Lab were
17 treated any differently than other University retirees until on or about January 1,2008, when
18 the Regents stopped providing their medical benefits and transferred responsibility for
19 providing these benefits to LLNS. In so doing, the Regents terminated the vested right of
20 Requa and other retirees who had worked at Livermore Lab to receive the same University-
21 provided health coverage as other University retirees.
22 8. After Requa retired, the University provided medical benefits to him through
23 Kaiser, which LLNS uses his current provider. Requa is informed and believes that,
24 although LLNS assumed responsibility for managing the Livermore Lab on or about October
25 1, 2007, the Regents continued to provide him and other retirees who had worked at the
26 Livermore Lab with medical benefits through the University until on or about January 1,
27 2008. Requa is further informed and believes that, throughout 2008, the coverage LLNS
28 provided was the same or similar to the coverage that the Regents provided to other
Requa, et aI, v. Regents a/University a/California, et al.
PETITION FOR WRIT OF MANDATE PAGE 3
1 University retirees. However, on or about January 1,2009, LLNS increased Requa's monthly
2 premium and his co-payments for medical visits and prescriptions. During the same period,
3 the Regents did not increase the monthly premium and co-payments for University retirees
4 from facilities other than the Livermore Lab. Requa estimates that for 2009, he paid about
5 $1,000 more for retiree medical benefits than he would have paid under the University-
6 provided plan. He estimates that, in 2010, he will pay $2,000 more.
7 WENDELL G. MOEN
8 9. Wendell G. Moen began working at the Livermore Lab in 1963. He retired in June
9 2000 with no breaks in University service. Throughout his career at the Livermore Lab,
10 Moen was a University employee, was always treated like a University employee, and was
11 told by his superiors that he was a University employee. Among other things, the University
12 issued his paycheck, and he was covered by the University's Staff Personnel Policies and
13 Procedures.
14 10. When Moen began working at the Livermore Lab, he became a member of the
15 University of Cali fomi a Retirement System (UCRS), later known as UCRP.
16 11. After he retired, Moen's retirement checks came from UCRP, and the Regents
17 treated him like any other Up,iversjty retiree. In fact, Moen was not treated differently than
18 other University retirees until on or about January 1,2008, when the Regents shifted
19 responsibility for providing his medical benefits to LLNS, a private consortium. Moen is
20 informed and believes that, although LLNS assumed responsibility for managing the Lab on
21 or about October 1,2007, the Regents did not shift the responsibility for providing Moen's
22 retiree medical benefits to LLNS until on or about January 1,2008. When the Regents shifted
23 responsibility for Moen's medical benefits to LLNS, they breached his vested right to receive
24 the same University-provided health benefits as other University retirees.
25 12. After LLNS assumed responsibility for managing the Livermore Lab, University
26 retirees from the Lab (including Moen himself) were asked to select a health care provider.
27 Moen selected Anthem Blue Cross, and LLNS still uses Anthem Blue Cross to provide
28 Moen's retiree medical benefits.

PETITION FOR WRIT OF MANDATE PAGE 4
1 JAY DAVIS
2 13. Jay Davis began working at the Livermore Lab in June 1971 and retired on June
3 29,2002, with no breaks in University service. Throughout his career at the Livermore Lab,
4 he was a University employee. He was told by his superiors that he was a University
5 employee and was always treated like one. Among other things, the University issued his
6 paycheck, and he was covered by the University Staff Personnel Policies and Procedures.
7 14. When Davis began working at the Livermore Lab, he became a member of the
8 University of Cali fomi a Retirement System (UCRS), later known as UCRP.
9 15. Since Davis retired in June 2002, his retirement checks have been issued by
10 UCRP. The Regents treated him like any other University retiree until on or about January 1,
11 2008, when the Regents stopped providing him with medical benefits through the University.
12 16. Davis is informed and believes that, although LLNS assumed responsibility for
13 managing the Livermore Lab on or about October 1,2007, the Regents continued to provide
14 the same medical benefits to him (and other retirees who had worked at the Livermore Lab) as
15 to other University retirees until on or about January 1,2008. He is further informed and
16 believes that, during 2008, the coverage LLNS provided was the same or similar to the
17 coverage the Regents provided to other University retirees. However, on or about January 1,
18 2009, LLNS increased Davis' monthly premium and his co-payments for medical visits and
19 prescriptions. The Regents did not impose this increase on retirees from other University
20 facilities. Davis estimates that for 2009, he paid about $1,000 more for retiree medical
21 benefits than he would have paid under the University-provided plan. He estimates that, in
22 2010, he will pay about $2,000 more.
23 17. By shifting responsibility for providing Davis' retiree medical benefits to a private
24 consortium, LLNS, the Regents terminated Davis' vested right to receive the same
25 University-provided health coverage as other University retirees.
26 18. LLNS currently uses Kaiser to provide Davis' retiree medical benefits.

1 DONNA VENTURA
2 19. Donna Ventura began working at the Livermore Lab in January 1974 and retired
3 on June 30, 2006, with no breaks in University service. Throughout her time at the Livermore
4 Lab, Ventura was a University employee. She was told by her superiors that she was a
5 University employee, and they always treated her like one. Among other things, the
6 University issued her paycheck, and she was covered by its Staff Personnel Policies and
7 Procedures.
8 20. When Ventura began work at the Livermore Lab, she became a member of the
9 University of Cali fomi a Retirement System (UCRS), later known as UCRP.
10 21. Since Ventura retired in June 2006, her retirement checks have always been issued
11 by UCRP. In fact, she was never treated differently than any other University retiree until on
12 or about January 1,2008, when the Regents stopped providing her with retiree medical
13 benefits through the University.
14 22. Ventura is informed and believes that, although LLNS assumed responsibility for
15 managing the Livermore Lab on or about October 1, 2007, the Regents continued to provide
16 medical benefits to her and: other retirees who had worked at the Livermore Lab until on or
17 about January 1,2008. She is further informed and believes that during 2008, the coverage
18 provided by LLNS was the same or similar to the coverage the Regents provided to other
19 University retirees. However, on or about January 1, 2009, LLNS increased Ventura's
20 monthly premium and her co-payments for medical visits and prescriptions, an increase that
21 the Regents did not impose on retirees from other University facilities. Ventura estimates that
22 for 2009, she paid about $1,000 more for retiree medical benefits than she would have paid
23 under the University-provided plan. She estimates that, in 2010, she will pay about $2,000
24 more.
25 23. By shifting responsibility for providing retiree medical benefits to a private
26 consortium, LLNS, the Regents abrogated Ventura's vested right to receive the same
27 University-provided health c(:werage as other University retirees.
28 24. LLNS now uses Kaiser to provide Ventura's retiree medical benefits.
Requa, et ai, v. Regents a/University a/California, et al.
PETITION FOR WRIT OF MANDATE PAGE 6
1 THE REGENTS
2 25. The Regents of the University of California is a public corporation organized and
3 operating under the laws of the State of California, pursuant to Article IX, section 9, of the
4 California Constitution.
5 DOE RESPONDENTS
6 26. Petitioners do not know the names and capacities of Doe Respondents 1-99, but
7 will amend their petition and add this information when they do. Petitioners are informed
8 and believe that each Doe Respondent was responsible in some manner for the acts
9 complained of.
10 FACTS
11 27. The Livermore Lab opened in 1952 as a branch of the University of California
12 Radiation Laboratory. From 1952 until 2007, the Regents operated the Livermore Lab under
13 a contract with the U.S. Department of Energy ("DOE") or predecessor agencies of the
14 federal government.
15 28. During this time, Petitioners and most employees who worked at the Livermore
16 Lab were regular employees of the University, working under the same terms and conditions,
17 and entitled to the same benefits as other University employees.
18 29. While the Regents managed the Livermore Lab, they treated University employees
19 who worked there in the same manner as they treated other University employees. Like other
20 University employees, the Livermore Lab employees received their paychecks from the
21 University; were subject to the same terms and conditions of work and covered by the same
22 personnel policies as other University employees; and they participated in the same retirement
23 system as other University employees.
24 30. Until 2007 or early 2008, the Regents also treated retirees who had worked at the
25 Livermore Lab in the same manner as other University retirees.
26 31. During the 1960s, the Regents first authorized medical benefits for University
27 employees, including those working at the Livermore Lab. At the same time or shortly
28
Requa, et aI, v. Regents 0/ University a/California, et al.
PETITION FOR WRIT OF MANDATE PAGE 7
1 thereafter, the Regents also authorized medical benefits for University retirees, including the
2 retirees who had worked at the Livermore Lab.
3 32. Between the 1960s and 2007, the Regents provided the same medical benefits to
4 active and retired employees who had worked at the Livermore Lab as they provided to other
5 active and retired University employees.
6 33. Petitioners who began work at the Livermore Lab before the Regents offered
7 retiree medical benefits acquired a vested right to these benefits when the Regents first
8 authorized them. Petitioners who began work at the Livermore Lab after the Regents
9 authorized retiree medical benefits acquired a vested right to these benefits upon being hired
10 by the University.
11 34. From the 1960s through 2007, the Regents, by and through statements made by
12 them and other University representatives and staff, acting within the scope of their authority,
13 and through publications, representations and communications from the Regents themselves
14 or from other University staff acting within the scope of their authority, led Petitioners and
15 other retirees who had worked at the Livermore Lab to reasonably believe they were entitled
16 to and would receive the same medical benefits as other University retirees.
17 35. After learning that LLNS planned to make changes to medical benefits for
18 University retirees who had worked at the Livermore Lab, Requa contacted the University's
19 Office of the General Counsel. On or about August 11,2008, Requa advised Acting General
20 Counsel Jeffrey Blair that he believed the Regents had acted unlawfully by terminating
21 University-provided medical benefits for retirees who had worked at the Livermore Lab and
22 shifting responsibility for providing these benefits to LLNS. Blair assured Requa that he
23 would respond within a week but called on August 25 and told Requa he needed another
24 week. After Requa waited,&p0ther week, he telephoned Blair on September 4. Blair
25 promised a response in five days, but he never did respond.
26 36. Although Requa never heard from Blair, he did receive a letter from counsel for
27 LLNS on September 16,2008. In her letter, LLNS's attorney represented that "medical costs
28 for Laboratory retirees have always been paid for by operating costs of the Laboratory" and
Requa, et aI, v. Regents of University of California, et al.
PETITION FOR WRIT OF MANDATE PAGE 8
1 asserted that "coverage could change or be terminated at any time." She went on to say it had
2 been "determined by the Department of Energy that Laboratory employees who retired from
3 UC would no longer be included in the UC retiree pool for coverage purposes," and that
4 going forward, benefits for retirees who had worked at Livermore Lab "may not be equivalent
5 to those offered by the University." These assertions were inconsistent with earlier
6 assurances and representations from the Regents.
7 37. In 2007, DOE did not renew its contract with the Regents to manage the
8 Livermore Lab. Instead, it contracted with Lawrence Livermore National Security ("LLNS"),
9 a newly-created private consortium that included the University, Bechtel National, Babcock
1 0 and Wilcox and other entities.
11 38. As noted, on or about January 1,2008, the Regents stopped providing medical
12 benefits through the University to the retirees who had worked at the Livermore Lab and
13 shifted the responsibility for doing so to LLNS. At or about this time, the Regents assured
14 retirees who had worked at the Livermore Lab that they would continue to receive
15 "substantially equivalent" medical benefits from LLNS.
16 39. Since the Regents stopped providing Petitioners with University-provided retiree
17 medical benefits, Petitioners and other retirees who had worked at the Livermore Lab have
18 not received the same medical benefits as other University retirees.
19 40. Nor have who worked at the Livermore Lab received "substantially
20 equivalent" retiree medical benefits, despite the Regents' assurances that they would.
21 41. Even if LLNS had provided Petitioners with "equivalent" benefits, this would not
22 have given the Regents authority to abrogate Petitioners' vested right to receive the same
23 University-provided medical benefits as other University retirees.
24 42. As University retirees who have suffered and will continue to suffer harm as a
25 result of the actions described above, Petitioners are beneficially interested in this proceeding.

Requa, et al. v. Regents 0/ University o/California, et al.
PETITION FOR WRIT OF MANDATE PAGE 9
1 FIRST CAUSE OF ACTION
2 (Impairment of Contract)
3 43. Petitioners incorporate the above allegations as if set forth in full.
4 44. Petitioners and other retirees who worked at the Livermore Lab have a vested right
5 to the retiree medical benefits described above as each of them was (a) a University employee
6 when the Regents first authorized retiree medical benefits or (b) became a University
7 employee after retiree medical benefits were authorized.
8 45. Retiree medical benefits were (and continue to be) an integral part of Petitioners'
9 compensation. Once these benefits vested, the Regents could not terminate the benefits
10 without impairing contractual obligations they owed to Petitioners under the Contract Clause
11 of the California Constitution, Article I, § 9.
12 46. Though vested, Petitioners' benefits are not rigidly fixed, and may be modified in
13 accord with changing conditions - but only if the modification is reasonable. To be
14 sustained as reasonable, a modification must be materially related to the theory of a pension
15 plan and its successful operation, and changes in a pension plan which disadvantage
16 employees should be accompanied by comparable new advantages.
17 47. The termination of Petitioners' vested right to receive the same University-
18 provided retiree medical benefits as other University retirees was not a reasonable
19 modification. The Regents did not modify Petitioners' right to these benefits; they eliminated
20 the right.
21 48. By terminating Petitioners' vested right to receive the same University-provided
22 medical benefits as other University retirees, the Regents impaired their contractual
23 obligations to Petitioners aqd other retirees who worked at the Livermore Lab in violation of
24 Article I, § 9 of the California Constitution.
25 49. Alternatively, by shifting the responsibility for providing medical benefits for
26 retirees who worked at the Livermore Lab to LLNS, the Regents abrogated or impaired their
27 contractual obligation to Petitioners (to continue to provide them with the same medical
28 benefits as other University retirees) under the California Constitution, Article I, § 9.
Requa, et aI, v. Regents a/University a/California, et al.
PETITION FOR WRIT OF MANDATE PAGE 10
1 50. Even if shifting responsibility from the University to LLNS could be regarded as a
2 "modification," it was not a "reasonable modification." The change eliminated Petitioners'
3 right to coverage under the University-provided retiree medical benefit plan and put them into
4 a plan that has significant disadvantages while providing no comparable new advantages.
5 Retirees from the have been removed from the University's risk pool and put
6 into a much smaller pool that is aging and becoming more infirm. Since retirees who worked
7 at Livermore Lab will no longer enjoy the benefits of spreading risk over the University's
8 much larger pool (of retirees and employees), the cost of their coverage will increase more
9 rapidly than it will for other University retirees; and as members of a smaller pool, their
10 bargaining power with health care providers has and will continue to diminish. None of these
11 changes bears a material relation to the theory of a pension system and its successful
12 operation.
13 51. University-provided retiree medical benefits are a form of deferred compensation
14 that Petitioners earned during years of service to the University and which vested before
15 retirement.
16 52. The Regents offered University-provided retiree medical benefits in order to
17 induce Petitioners to remain at the Livermore Lab. Once their right to these benefits vested,
18 Petitioners reasonably expected that the Regents would continue to provide them with these
19 benefits throughout retirement.
20 53. This Court may issue a writ "to any ... corporation, board or person to compel the
21 performance of an act which the law specially enjoins ... or to compel the admission of a party
22 to the use and enjoyment of a right ... to which the party is entitled, and from which the party
23 is unlawfully precluded by such inferior ... corporation, board, or person." Cal. Code ofCiv.
24 Proc. § 1085(a). Here, the Regents have deprived Petitioners of the use and enjoyment of
25 vested right to the same University-provided medical benefits as other University retirees.
26 Petitioners are entitled to a writ to restore them to the use and enjoyment of these rights.
27 54. Petitioners have no plain, speedy and adequate remedy in the ordinary course of
28 law.
Requa, et aI, v. Regents a/University a/California, et al.
PETITION FOR WRIT OF MANDATE PAGE 11
1 SECOND CAUSE OF ACTION
2 (Promissory Estoppel)
3 55. Petitioners incorporate the above allegations as if set forth in full.
4 56. As noted above, between the 1960s and the 2007 "modification," the Regents
5 clearly and unambiguously promised, through publications, representations, communications
6 and conduct, that Petitioners would receive the same University-provided medical benefits as
7 other University retirees.
8 57. For more than 40 years, the Regents treated University employees and retirees
9 who worked at the Livermore Lab like other University employees and retirees. During this
10 time, the Regents knew that University employees who worked at the Livermore Lab would
11 and did rely on the fact that the Regents had authorized and were providing retirees who had
12 worked at the Livermore Lab with the same medical benefits as other University retirees. The
13 Regents knew or should have known that Petitioners would reasonably believe that when they
14 retired they would continue to receive the same University-provided medical benefits as other
15 University retirees.
16 58. Petitioners relied on the Regents' promises, representations, statements,
17 publications, communications, and course of conduct by remaining at the Livermore Lab and
18 foregoing other employment opportunities.
19 59. Petitioners had no reason to believe prior to 2007 that the Regents would treat
20 them any differently than other University retirees.
21 60. Petitioners' reliance on the Regents' promises, statements, publications,
22 comments, communications and conduct was reasonable.
23 61. Petitioners were injured by their reliance on the Regents' promises, statements,
24 publications, comments, communications and conduct in that, among other things, they
25 continued to work at the Livermore Lab while foregoing other employment opportunities, and
26 they made retirement plans based on the reasonable assumption that the Regents would
27 continue to provide them with the same medical coverage as other University retirees.

PETITION FOR WRIT OF MANDATE PAGE 12
1 THIRD CAUSE OF ACTION
2 (Declaratory Relief)
3 62. Petitioners incorporate the above allegations as if set forth in full.
4 63. As alleged, Petitioners' right to receive the same University-provided retiree
5 medical benefits as other University retirees vested before retirement. Once vested, the
6 Regents could not abrogate these benefits without impairing Petitioners' rights under the
7 Contract Clause of the California Constitution.
8 64. The Regents were without authority to shift responsibility for providing
9 Petitioners' retiree medical benefits to LLNS (a private entity).
10 65. By shifting this responsibility, the Regents impaired Petitioners' contractual
11 rights.
12 66. As a public agency, the Regents had a duty to honor their contractual obligations
13 as required by the Contract Clause of the California Constitution and to ensure that the
14 University continued to the retirees who had worked at the Livermore Lab with same
15 medical benefits as other University retirees.
16 67. The Regents are estopped from denying their obligation for the medical benefits
17 promised to Petitioners as alleged above.
18 68. A dispute has arisen and presently exists regarding: the Regents' authority (a) to
19 lawfully terminate Petitioners' vested right to receive University-provided medical benefits on
20 the same basis as other University retirees and (b) to shift responsibility for providing
21 Petitioners' retiree medical benefits to LLNS; and (c) whether the Regents are estopped from
22 denying responsibility for providing the promised medical benefits.
23 69. Petitioners are entitled to a declaration of their rights and to appropriate injunctive
24 relief.
25 PRA YER FOR RELIEF
26 Petitioners pray that,after an appropriate hearing, this Court issue the following relief:
27 1. A Peremptory Writ of Mandate, directing the Regents to restore Petitioners' use and

1 VERIFICATION OF JOE REQUA
2 I say and declare:
3 1. My name is Joe Requa. I am one of the Petitioners in this action. I am a resident of
4 the County of Alameda, State ofCalifomia.
