Madison County, IL is in the Metro East part of the state, that is, the Illinois side of the St. Louis sprawl. In early January, President Bush visited Metro East, touting his since passed class-action suit reform bill, which switches jurisdiction for many of these cases to federal courts. Shrewd lawyers loved to pick Madison County to file such cases, knowing that crazy jurors and even crazier judges are in abundance there.
Well, you can find crazy lawyers there too. Perhaps he's suffering withdrawl symptoms, but according to the Madison Record, Alton attorney Emert Wyss accidentally sued himself by suing a company he owns. Alton is in, you guessed it, Madison County.
Hat tip to the excellent online conservative journal, the Illinois Leader.
