Lawsuit for Illinois Treasurer delayed

Posted:

Springfield - A decision regarding Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford's request to throw out a lawsuit filed against him by a former employee has been delayed. 

 

At the Thursday hearing, an attorney for former employee Edmund Michalowski asked for a month to respond to Rutherford's motion.  The judge agreed as well, but did not state when she would rule on Rutherford's request. 

 

Michalowski's lawsuit accuses Rutherford of sexual harassment, as well as making him perform political work and duties on state time in January.  Rutherford dismisses these claims as politically motivated, as they were made during Rutherford's failed bid for the Republican nomination for governor. 

 

Rutherford's attorneys are arguing that not only does Michalowski not show how he was discriminated against or harassed, but Rutherford should be entitled to government immunity.
