A Chicago lawyer has seven days to disclose any information her clients might have about a dark money source that funded a series of contentious 2018 campaign flyers.
More than a year has passed since McHenry County Clerk and Recorder Joe Tirio filed a defamation lawsuit against the anonymous money source that calls itself the Illinois Integrity Fund.
Last month, Kane County Judge Kevin Busch ordered the Integrity Fund's attorney, Natalie Harris, to disclose further information about the anonymous group. Harris was supposed to have that information filed within 45 days of the judge's Dec. 5 ruling. On Friday, however, Busch granted Harris another seven days to respond.
Whatever additional details, if any, are filed won't immediately be public information, Harris said.
Any names that might be revealed could surface later, however, in future court filings.
The case will resume March 20 in Kane County, where the matter is being heard.
