Judge puts off ruling in suit against Rutherford

CHICAGO (AP) — A federal judge has delayed a decision about granting Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford’s  request to throw out a lawsuit filed against him by a former employee.

An attorney for former employee Edmund Michalowski  asked at a Thursday hearing for a month to respond to Rutherford’s motion. Judge Joan Lefkow  agreed. She didn’t say when she would rule on Rutherford’s request.

Michalowski accused Rutherford in January of sexual harassment and making him do political work while on state time.

Rutherford denies the claims and says they’re politically motivated. The lawsuit came in the midst of Rutherford’s failed bid for the Republican nomination for Illinois governor.  

Rutherford’s attorneys argue Michalowski doesn’t show how he was harassed or discriminated against.
