The state has dropped the pension case against Naperville’s top cop.
Chief Bob Marshall is now clear to receive both a police pension as well as his salary for being chief.
The double payment had been called into question as Marshall left the department in 2005 after 28 years of service, then returned as chief in 2012. At that time, he chose to continue receiving his pension. Soon after, the Illinois Department of Insurance filed against him in a case which eventually landed in DuPage County court. There it was ruled that he did not count as a police officer for pension purposes, allowing him to collect both his $154,775 salary as well as his $104,109 pension.
That ruling was appealed by the state, but has now been dropped as they felt they would be unlikely to win their case.
