Pension Reform Law Challenged in Circuit Court


A new front has opened up in the legal war over Illinois pension reform. A coalition of public sector unions filed a class action lawsuit in Sangamon County Circuit Court Tuesday… calling the new pension law approved last month unfair and unconstitutional.

 

The “We Are One” coalition says it may ask the court to block enforcement of the new law until the legal challenges are resolved.

 

It is one of at least four lawsuits which alleges the new law clearly violates the Illinois Constitution, which prohibits diminishment of public sector pension benefits.
