Move to Consolidate Cases Challenging Pension Reform


A group of state retirees is asking the state’s Supreme Court to consolidate four lawsuits that challenge Illinois’ new pension reform law.

 

Four different groups of retirees filed lawsuits that challenge the new law as an unconstitutional diminishment of promised benefits.

 

The groups filed their cases in two different jurisdictions—in Sangamon County and in Cook County.

 

The Supreme Court would have to decide where combined class action lawsuit would eventually be heard.

 

The state passed a pension reform law in December.
