SPRINGFIELD, Ill --There is now a follow up to a WGN and Chicago Tribune investigation from three years ago about an exposed a gaping pension loophole in Illinois.

Union lobbyist David Piccioli was able to be a substitute teacher for a day and get a pension for life.

Angry lawmakers took it away.

Now Piccioli is suing to get it back, on the same grounds state workers are using to challenge the pension reform law in the Illinois Supreme Court - that it's unconstitutional to diminish promised benefits.
