Elusive Schock’s attorneys acknowledge lawsuit from campaign donor

SHARE Elusive Schock’s attorneys acknowledge lawsuit from campaign donor

Aaron Schock’s lawyers have formally acknowledged the federal lawsuit a one-time campaign donor filed last month against the embattled ex-congressman.

The donor’s attorney, Daniel Kurowski, told U.S. District Judge Andrea Wood two weeks ago that he couldn’t find the Peoria Republican in order to serve him with the lawsuit.

But Schock’s attorney, Howard C. Vick Jr. of McGuire Woods, formally waived service in a notice filed Wednesday. The two sides are expected back in court June 23.

Kurowski’s client, Howard Foster of Chicago, gave $500 to Schock’s campaign in 2012 and wants class-action status for his RICO complaint.

Schock, who resigned from Congress on March 31, is the subject of an ongoing federal investigation.
