He said he intervened on behalf of clients. Google "caulkins devore court" for many many more stories, but here are the broad strokes: Quote How Caulkins set up his lawsuit led to a spat with DeVore this week. The latter filed a motion to intervene in Caulkins' case, saying that six plaintiffs were misled as they were only included as members of the association, not as individuals. The plaintiffs were also encouraged to donate $200 to Caulkins' campaign account to help cover legal expenses. Only one of the six actually donated and Caulkins said that contributions were voluntary. The Illinois Freedom Caucus, a far-right bloc of state legislators, put out a statement earlier this week reaffirming that they support all legal challenges to the ban. Caulkins, asked about the brouhaha with DeVore, struck a conciliatory tone Friday. "The work that he's done has been very successful," Caulkins said. "If it weren't for that, we wouldn't be here today. We're following that same trail, but with different arguments. And we we believe that every FOID card holder should have the same privileges, not just the folks that he is named as plaintiffs. That's our difference." Forbes told both attorneys that they made "very good arguments" that he would take under advisement. He hopes "to issue a quick decision," signaling sometime next week.
