Civil Action No. 89-CP-26-1136;
The largest class action settlement ever against the State of South Carolina.
This case involved 64,000 Federal retirees who brought an action against the South Carolina Department of Revenue for return of state taxes which had been collected on Federal pensions. This case went to the South Carolina Supreme Court on two occasions and the United States Supreme Court on two occasions. Eventually, a class action settlement was reached in 1994 in which approximately $89 million was refunded to Federal retirees throughout South Carolina.
