Yesterday the Illinois, Cook County Civil Court judge in my late father's nursing home lawsuit, for extreme neglect resulting in leg amputation, ruled that the nursing home that we sued was not a successor in interest to its predecessor, but could purchase the nursing home assets and leave behind its liabilities (this lawsuit), when the only change between the two nursing homes was the name: the nursing home operated in the same building, with the same procedures, the same staff, and my father was in the same room, same bed number, and the same billing came to me (paid in full). We did not deserve this. Dirty, dirty Illinois. The Illinois state government should have prosecuted this case, and criminal charges should have been filed against the operators of this nursing home. But the powers-that-be seem to be in cahoots. Dirty, dirty Illinois.
