Four Lawsuits Challenging Pension Reform Combined Into One


Sangamon County will be the first major battleground in the looming legal fight over pension reform.

 

The Illinois Supreme Court has ordered four separate lawsuits challenging the new law to be consolidated into one case, to be heard in Sangamon County.

 

Various groups representing public sector employees and retirees have sued, saying the law approved late last year is an unconstitutional diminishment of the benefits they have been promised.

 

Putting all four cases together in Sangamon County could help the litigation move more quickly… although all parties agree that the cases will eventually return to the state Supreme Court for a final decision.
