Retiree health premium suit heads to court
Case may decide whether benefits can be changed
The battle over whether retired public employees should be required to pay health insurance premiums may finally be headed to a Springfield courtroom.
Four lawsuits that challenge the legality of such premiums are scheduled for a hearing Feb. 20 before Judge Steven Nardulli. All four have been consolidated into one case.
A central issue to all of the lawsuits is whether retiree health insurance has the same constitutional protections as a pension check.
