Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s personal lawyers are seeking to keep him from having to sit for a deposition in a racial discrimination lawsuit against his campaign.
The lawsuit accuses Pritzker’s campaign organization of sidelining minority workers.
Pritzker has denied wrongdoing, and in a court filing, says he delegated day-to-day campaign operations to staff.
Indeed, the governor was dismissed from the case months ago, and his lawyers say defendants just want to question Pritzker in order to “pull him back into litigation.”
The filing is here.
