Lebamoff v. O’Connell was dismissed yesterday as the plaintiff is no longer involved in the case based on a business transaction.
This case is the story of pathetic case management and a 94 year-old judge that dragged things on.
We thought this case was set for trial back in April and the date kept getting moved.
By the time a new judge was appointed as a replacement, it was too late.
This won’t be the end of the Illinois cases fighting discriminatory wine retailer shipping laws.
We can only hope for a judge that adheres to a schedule and moves things along. There are serious flaws with the system!
