Madison Record


On Nov. 2, Chief of the Firearm Services Bureau of the Illinois State Police Gregory Hacker and Illinois Treasurer Michael Frerichs filed a cross-motion for summary judgment through Attorney General Kwame Raoul.


The defendants argue that the "plaintiff's request for damages is barred by sovereign immunity, and because plaintiff has not alleged any non-barred claim against defendants based on the challenged vendor processing fee."


"Here, plaintiff seeks monetary damages against defendants in their official capacities as state officers for alleged wrongful collection of fees. Because this claim for damages is predicated exclusively on defendants' official role as state employees, plaintiff's suit is a suit against the state itself," the memorandum in support of summary judgment states.


In other words, the named defendants are not liable for anything they do as state employees. Therefore the only remaining defendant is the State of Illinois itself.
