July hearing set in social services lawsuit against Illinois

CHICAGO (AP) – Attorneys involved in a lawsuit brought by social service providers working without state pay for nearly a year are due in court next month.

A coalition of 82 groups called Pay Now Illinois filed a lawsuit against Gov. Bruce Rauner and state agencies citing fallout from the state’s budget impasse. The group claims it’s owed more than $130 million for 11 months of unpaid work.

The Illinois attorney general’s office is representing the state. Attorneys briefly appeared in court on Tuesday and a July 13 hearing date was set.

Illinois has been operating without a budget since last summer as Rauner and Democrats who run the Legislature remain deadlocked.

The service providers span a range of organizations, including the Ounce of Prevention Fund, which is run by Rauner’s wife, Diana.
