Higher Pension for Trooper in Jon Corzine Car Crash

 The New Jersey state trooper who was driving when former Gov. Jon Corzine’s SUV crashed five years ago will get a more lucrative pension.

The Star-Ledger of Newark  reports the state’s pension board decided Tuesday to accept an administrative law judge’s ruling that reversed the board’s 2010 denial of Robert Rasinski’s bid for an accidental disability pension.

The newspaper says the case was sealed by the judge, meaning the reasoning behind the decision won’t be disclosed. The board initially found Rasinski bore significant responsibility for the accident. It granted him a less-generous disability pension that included health benefits, but equaled only 40 percent of his salary, rather than the two-thirds he will now get.
