class action settlement

Burger Law finalized settlement against the State of Illinois for denying contraception as part of its health care plan to female employees. This suit was successful in changing the health policies of the State of Illinois to provide women health insurance coverage for prescription contraceptive medicine. The class is over 50,000 women and was certified about eight years ago through extensive litigation and negotiation, we were able to set up a fund with the state from which women made claims for their out of pocket costs for contraception. We are happy and proud to get this recovery for women from all 50 states. Please call us, write us or email us with questions about class action of sex discrimination questions. Thank you.
