A second lawsuit has now been filed against the pension reform plan that was signed into law last month… and more litigation is likely to follow.
The class-action suit by the Retired State Employees Association follows a similar case filed by a group of retired teachers.
The retirees’ group says the pension law is unconstitutional, because it takes away cost-of-living benefits for thousands of retired workers.
The suit also objects to the provision of the law that exempts the pensions of judges.
Public sector unions are also planning to file suit on behalf of current government employees and teachers.
