A Bend attorney is making a legal challenge that if he's correct could mean a huge windfall of millions of dollars to state agencies and school districts. The big losers in the game would be State workers and their retirement accounts. Bend attorney Dan Re has been extensively researching the history of PERs, and he believes that judges who are in PERs themselves have a conflict of interest and can't rule on cases involving the Public Employee Retirement System: “What I did on February 14th, I filed a petition with the Oregon Supreme Court and I also filed motions to disqualify all the Oregon Supreme Court Justices from actually deciding that petition. And this is based on an earlier case that I filed in the Oregon Tax Court, and I was allegeding that: it’s unconstitutional for Oregon public employers to pick up employees PERs Employee contributions.“ In 1994 Oregonians passed Measure 8, which directs the State to stop putting in the employee pick-up. Two years later the Justices, who were all in PERs, threw out Measure 8. Re says if he wins all of that money, 17 years of contributions and portfolio growth would have to come out of the workers account and be refunded to the State.
