February 7, 2012: Judge Rita Novak, of the Cook County Circuit Court, will hear arguments to roll back the 90 percent January 1st toll tax increase, and end the tollway system in Illinois.
In its amended complaint, Taxpayers United of America, (“TUA”), claims the Tollway Authority violated several statuatory requirements.  If the court agrees, it could order the Tollway Authority to abandon its fifteen-year, $12 billion capital plan.
The February 7th hearing challenges the doubling of tolls for cash users, and seeks  permission to proceed as a class action on behalf of all tollway users.
Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s office is representing the Tollway. She has asked the court to throw out Tobin’s case in its entirety.
The hearing will be held at 10:00 a.m. in Room 2402 of the Richard J. Daley Center, 50 West Washington Street, Chicago, Illinois 60602.
