Madigan subpoenaed for IL Choose-Life lawsuit

chooselifepltIL.jpgThis will be interesting only to IL pols:

IL Speaker of the House Michael Madigan was subpoenaed June 17 to give a deposition on what part he played, if any (ha), to stop the Illinois Choose Life license plate legislation last year.

(Side note: Workers at Madigan's law office told the process server he wasn't in. But she smelled a rat and barged into his inner sanctum where - voila! - she spotted him and served him. She said he was unpleasant. Actually, she said he was "arrogant.")

Madigan's daughter, AG Lisa, is fighting the subpoena.

Another legislator who shall remain nameless for the moment is presently dodging and weaving the server.

For backdrop read: "Choose Life, Inc., sues to halt specialty plate distribution," 6-28-04

Good scoop!

Itsn't Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan's representation of her father in a legal action whether business related or otherwise, a conflict of interest pursuant to Rule 1.8 (a)1, Conflict of Interest of the Supreme Court of Illinois Rules of Professional Conduct.

Sounds like it to me. A special prosecutor should be appointed to represent Mike Madigan as it is in his daughters interest to make this legal action "disappear" as her father is a defendant.
