Lawyers in Public Employees Retirement System reform case awarded $940,000 in fees

SALEM — The Oregon Supreme Court has awarded nearly $1 million to attorneys representing public employees in the court case that challenged certain legislative reforms to the state’s public employee retirement system.

In an opinion released Thursday, the court awarded $902,665.32 in fees and costs to Bennett, Hartman, Morris & Kaplan, LLP, a Portland law firm representing several of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit, known as Moro v. Oregon.

In Moro, the Oregon Supreme Court reversed many of the Legislature’s reforms in 2015, finding that it could not make changes retroactively to the benefits accrued by public employees.

Another $41,127.87 was awarded to three people who represented themselves in the lawsuit — Michael Reynolds, George Riemer and Wayne Stanley Jones.
