Mitch Kline recently won an appeal in the Illinois Appellate Court. The case was against the Chicago Pension Board.
Mitch was representing a Chicago police officer, who had worked fifteen years for the City. In 2016, she developed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder [ PTSD] when she was responding to an armed robbery situation. She has been unable to work, since she developed PTSD.
Mitch’s client was requesting an “on duty” pension, which is 75% of her salary. The Board was only offering her a 50% pension, which is based on an injury that is not work related. Mitch convinced the Court that his client deserved the 75% pension.
