$1M Claim Over Chicagoland Casino

CHICAGO (CN) - A business claims that the three men who run SL Waukegan persuaded it to invest $1 million in a casino in Waukegan, by promising that William Cellini - who is facing fraud charges for his alleged relations with both ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich and Antoin "Tony" Rezko - had no involvement in the project. But he did, plaintiff BDK Waukegan says.

BDK is represented by Donald Johnson and Lawrence Seiwert.
