A judge has decided lawyers should receive $1.5 million from refunds stemming from lawsuits that struck down an Illinois law making retirees pay premiums for state-subsidized health insurance. The State Journal-Register reported that Sangamon County Associate Judge Steven H. Nardulli made the decision. It’s less than half the amount lawyers requested. The money will come from about $63 million in health insurance premiums that were collected from retirees’ pension checks. The state Supreme Court ruled last summer that the law was unconstitutional because it altered promised benefits.
