CRONHOLM v. BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF LOCKPORT TOWNSHIP FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT FIREFIGHTERS’ PENSION FUND

On October 21, 2015 the Third District Appellate Court heard oral arguments in Cronholm v. Board of Trustees of the Lockport Township Fire Protection District Firefighters’ Pension Fund.  The Pension Board, following a remand hearing (see Randich v. Lockport Township Firefighters’ Pension Board), determined that the plaintiff had re-entered active service when he retired as the District’s fire chief and was then re-hired as chief administrator for the District.  The trial court reversed the Pension Board’s decision.
