Another lawsuit has been filed over the pension restructuring law.

Representing the Retired State Employees Association, lawyer John Myers says nobody – let alone lawmakers – should be surprised.

“Not only did they know it, but the counsel to (Senate President) John Cullerton wrote about a 70-page article about it … saying that the state of Illinois can’t welch on its promises,” he said.

Myers says he would not be surprised if similar suits were consolidated, and for the Supreme Court to take it all up quickly.
