Mayor Daley has been subpoenaed by the defense in the upcoming trial of developer Calvin Boender, City Hall disclosed today.
A statement from City Hall's Corporation Counsel Mara Georges said Daley received the subpoena Tuesday. Boender, who is accused of bribing Ald. Issac "Ike" Carothers in exchange for a zoning change, had also subpoenaed 10 aldermen.
"On Tuesday, February 23rd, my office received a subpoena from the defense for the Mayor's appearance at trial in the Cal Boender case," Georges said in the statement. "If the court finds that the Mayor’s testimony is relevant and required, he will testify."
