On October 2014, the firm successfully defeated an emergency application for injunctive relief brought by a contender for political office (a seat in the Illinois House of Representatives) against his opponent in the election. The plaintiff in that case filed his emergency request with the court less than a month before the election, and sought to prevent further airing of a campaign ad placed by a political action committee. The firm argued that such injunctive relief represented a prohibited prior restraint on constitutionally-protected rights, including the rights of free speech and association. Since the court's denial of the temporary restraining order, the firm has asked the trial court to dismiss the complaint, and award the firm's client his attorneys' fees, under the Illinois Citizen Participation Act. That motion remains pending.
