Another Lawsuit Filed Over Pension Reform Law


Another lawsuit has been filed challenging the pension reform plan approved by lawmakers and signed by Governor Pat Quinn last month. 

 

The Retired State Employees Association has filed a class-action suit on behalf of more than 60,000 retired state workers who would be affected by the new law and its changes to cost-of-living benefits.  The lawsuit… like a similar complaint filed last month by retired teachers… says the law violates the State Constitution’s protections for public sector pensions. 

 

The named defendants… including Governor Pat Quinn… will have 30 days to respond to the complaint.
