The court battle over Rhode Island's Pension Overhaul Law is now headed for mediation. Superior Court Judge Sara Taft–Carter ordered the state today to meet with the five unions challenging the new law.

The unions and Governor Chafee had said they were willing to talk, but General Treasurer Gina Raimondo was against going to the negotiating table. The judge will get an update on how things are going during a hearing in February.
