Gidwitz and Baise join Richard Caro Suit

John Powers 20 December 2007 No Comment

Filing as independent taxpayers of Illinois, businessman Ron Gidwitz, Illinois Manufacturers Association President Greg Baise, and Riverside lawyer Richard Caro have joined in a single lawsuit vs. the Blagojevich Administration.

In court action Tuesday, Caro, joined by lawyers from the firm of Ungaretti & Harris presented a complaint and request for a temporary restraining order to restrict State of Illinois spending to legislatively approved purposes.

The position of the Illinois Attorney Generals office was questioned, as the office is representing the defendant (Comptroller Dan Hynes) as well as intervening as a plaintiff.
