Counterattack: Page, Chronicle sue Chief Just

admin 21 June 2007 No Comment

The Bob Thomas lawsuit just surfaced again, as bizarrely dramatic as ever. The side that lost round one launched an ingenious counterattack.

Thomas is chief justice of the Illinois Supreme Court. In January 2004 he sued the Kane County Chronicle and Bill Page, then a Chronicle columnist, over some columns Page had written a few months before. According to these columns, Thomas, a ?Republican party heavyweight? from DuPage County, was ?pushing hard for very severe sanctions? when a disciplinary case involving the state?s attorney of neighboring Kane County came before the supreme court. But in the end state?s attorney Meg Gorecki got off with a brief suspension of her law license.
