The city, which is struggling with a $20 billion unfunded pension liability in its four retirement systems, is appealing a Cook County Circuit Court judge's July decision voiding the law. In oral arguments on Tuesday, Chicago's top city attorney, Stephen Patton, said while the law includes "modest reductions in future automatic increases" in retiree pensions, it differs from a 2013 law that unilaterally cut benefits for Illinois' retirement systems and was struck down as unconstitutional by the state high court in May.
