For second time, judge dismisses lawsuit arguing consumers entitled to costs tied to ComEd bribery case
January 21, 2022
A Cook County judge on Friday again shot down a lawsuit that argues consumers should be able to recover costs associated with the ComEd bribery scandal that implicated former House Speaker Michael Madigan.
Circuit Judge Cecilia Horan ruled the court could not consider the class action claims for relief, citing the “separation of powers doctrine” that draws lines between the responsibilities of different branches of government.
