>The suit is to enforce Federal Law over state criminal bahavior.
Actually, the federal ruling from the FCC regarding rates specifically left such matters up to the states. They passed the ball, and Illinois ran with it, adding a provision to their law that specifically limited it to areas not in conflict with federal law. That being the case, it would be hard to see how a federal issue arises. I mean, it's hard to say that a state law violates federal law when that state law sepcifically defers to applicable federal law.
>Illinois is a criminal state and it will be proven in court.
Never gonna happen. Even Bubbya isn't dumb enough to take aim at the Illinois legislature. A LOT of Republicans voted for that legislation, and if the Bush Justice Department tried to claim criminal conspiracy (or any other criminal misconduct), the GOP would never again win a presidential election in Illinois. And it's a state they can't afford to lose. And they know it. The CLECs' dinky civil suit is not capable (regardless of the outcome) of proving criminal wrongdoing.
I sure hope you know more about investing than you do about legal matters.
