What is becoming a David and Goliath battle in Illinois, the Governor (Goliath) and his attorney may face a sanction filing by Tom DeVore (David) in relation to the most recent motion the Governor filed in hopes of having the Darren Bailey case moved to the Federal Courts.
“It is clear this attempt at removal is egregious and as such we are in the process of filing an objection along with a request for an emergency hearing to remand the matter back to the State court. Even based on the legal authority your office cites, the complaint in this matter raises not a single federal question. As such, your motion is unequivocally beyond the bounds of frivolous and was filed in bad faith.”
“If the Governor wants to immediately consent to remand to the State Court and agree to proceed with hearing on the Motion for Summary Judgment tomorrow at 1 pm, our office will not file a motion under FRCP 11 seeking sanctions against the Attorney General and the Governor for his blatant attempt at forum shopping.”
