Parking Meter Lawsuit
Finally, someone is contesting the parking meter contract. The case is named Bunting vs. William Blair and Co. 10 CH 40418. Watch this case. It is charging that a Daley nephew at Morgan Stanley, got and still gets, a huge commission check (over $1,000,000 every year). It also charges Blair and numerous alderman with negligence for not reading what they were voting on.
A legal expert I know says that the next step in the case may be to allege RICO and name all of the aldermen that voted for the parking deal. If that happens those aldermen could be personally on the hook. This case may eventually result in a rewrite of the parking meter contract.
