A judge was expected to hear state lawmakers’ lawsuit against Governor Quinn for the first time Tuesday morning.

The governor used a line-item veto last week to cancel lawmakers’ salaries until they deliver a solution to the state’s pension crisis.

House Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton, both Democrats like Quinn, have asked a judge to file an injunction against the veto, immediately restoring their salaries plus interest.
