[U]nder Maryland law, the City is only permitted to make reasonable modifications to its pension plans and is required to provide members with a substantially similar program after such modifications." [Cherry et al. v. Mayor and City Council of Baltimore City, Nos. 13-1007, 13-1115 and 13-1116 (4th Cir. Aug. 6, 2014)]
