Romanucci & Blandin and Wise Morrissey Call for a Full Audit of Commonwealth Edison and its Relationship with the Illinois Commerce Commission
Video playback of July 20, 2020 press conference calling for a full audit of Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) and its relationship with the Illinois Commerce Commission along with ComEd’s maintenance records of nearly one million electrical poles across Illinois. Romanucci & Blandin founding partner Stephan Blandin and Wise Morrissey attorney Bob Bingle called for this accountability because their clients were killed or permanently injured because of a faulty ComEd electrical pole that was not properly maintained and caused a catastrophic electrocution of two innocent individuals who were trying to work and earn an honest living. On Friday, July 17, 2020 U.S. Attorneys announced that ComEd agreed to pay $200 million dollars following a federal investigation into bribery of Illinois high level government officials. Members of the Zulauf family want answers about how ComEd’s corrupt practices may have contributed to the death of 32-year-old Robert Zulauf and the severe injury to his nephew 23-year-old Jordan Zulauf. The two were working on a ComEd pole in Sterling, Illinois on November 8, 2016 when they were electrocuted. The line was not properly insulated. Robert Zulauf was burned so badly he lost his life. Jordan lost both of his arms. The Zulauf family has filed a civil complaint against ComEd.
