State troopers suing to get jobs back

The union representing 56 Connecticut state troopers who were recently laid off are taking their case to court today.

The troopers were let go in an effort to close the state's $3.5 billion budget deficit.

In a closed door hearing in Hartford last month, a judge rejected a temporary injunction to save those jobs.

The police union says it will continue to challenge the governor's decision in a new hearing today.
