Turn, Turn, Turn

Here's our latest poll, motivated by a lot of discussion on the Oregon PERS Discussion Group and my lack of sympathy for the lump summers who profess to be surprised or stunned by their invoice. I'm sympathetic to the financial burder, just not the surprise of getting an invoice.

Since there is no injunction against PERS to prevent them from collecting overpayments, should members who took lump sum settlements?
Pay the lump sum and wait for the courts to decide on the legality
Consult an attorney and appeal to PERS?
Ignore the invoice and see what happens?
Plead with the PERS Board for mercy?
Sue for installment payment options although no statute currently permits them?
