HARTFORD, Conn. — The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday decided not to hear a petition regarding a decade-old labor dispute between a state employees union and the State of Connecticut, according to a report on CT News Junkie.

Former Gov. John G. Rowland and Marc Rya, his former budget director, had petitioned the court seeking a review of a unanimous decision by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals as it related to their decision back in 2003 to lay off 2,800 state employees. The U.S. Supreme Court decided on Friday not to take up the petition seeking a reversal of a Second Circuit Court decision.
