Judge hearing lawsuit wants info about Daley heath

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) - A Cook County judge wants lawyers for Richard M. Daley to explain the medical reason the former Chicago mayor shouldn't testify at the trial of the city's lawsuit seeking to break the agreement for a Millennium Park restaurant.

Judge Moshe Jacobius also questioned the attorneys' request to have a closed-door hearing to discuss Daley's medical condition.

Earlier this year Daley suffered symptoms similar to a stroke during a business trip.

In seeking to void a 30-year contract to operate Park Grill, Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration alleges a former Chicago Park District official "unduly and unfairly influenced" the process that led to a friend operating the restaurant.

Daley is a witness for the Park Grill's operators, who maintain he and his City Hall staff were intimately involved in planning the restaurant.
