City of Chicago v. Korshak & Retired Chicago Police Association v. City of Chicago
City of Chicago v. Korshak, 206 Ill.App.3d 968 (1st Dist. 1990). In
litigation spanning over 16 years, we have fought for annuitants’ contractual rights to promised lifetime healthcare coverage. In City of Chicago v. Korshak and Retired Chicago Police Ass'n v. City of Chicago,
7 F.3d 584 (7th Cir. 1992), parallel state and federal cases, the Krislov firm forced the City of Chicago to continue a fixed-rate subsidized plan of retiree health care insurance for 21,000 annuitants and their families, and, despite setbacks during various periods, successfully had these claims restored by the Illinois appellate court. City v. Korshak, Ill. App. unpublished order, (1st Dist. 2000), obtained injunctive relief, and ultimately obtained a settlement which ensures annuitant healthcare coverage through 2013 and beyond for Chicago Police, Firemen, Municipal Employees and Laborers.
