Fee Petition Filed by Plaintiffs in State Farm – Karmeier Case
Now online is the 1/3 fee petition from Hale v. State Farm. et al., # 3:12- cv-00660, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Illinois. As explained in an October 17, 2018 article in LAW360, the suit’s allegations assert thatState Farm “funneled millions into the campaign coffers of a candidate for an open seat on the [Illinois Supreme] court in order to buy his vote to overturn [a prior ruling] — and then lied about it in court filings, the suit claimed.” Unfortunately, the motion says nothing about what will or will not be done to make public the testimony and documents collected in discovery. That seems incongruous when the fee petitioners claim this case is important for the public.
