Lisa Madigan to Appeal Against State Retirees

{ Submitted by wesler1 on Thu, 2014-11-27 02:47 }

Lisa Madigan has filed an appeal against a Sangamon County Circuit Court ruling that a recent state pension law cutting retiree pensions is unconstitutional.

According to Aaron Maduff, attorney for a retiree group, it may be 10 to 16 months before the Illinois State Supreme Court renders a final verdict in the case. Retirees would have seen pension cuts on New Year's day.

The ruling does not affect three groups of City of Chicago retirees. Their pensions will still be cut on New Year's.
