A law firm in Chicago is demanding to get paid for its work on a case involving Richard Daley’s son Patrick.
The younger Daley got $1.2 million from a federal small business loan to his now-defunct venture capital firm Cardinal Growth; the government seized the company two years ago.
But while the government investigated Cardinal Growth, it hired the company’s law firm Peterson & Houpt to search all company emails.
That cost $44,000; and the Small Business Administration doesn’t want to pay the bill. The SBA won’t say whether Patrick Daley is part of its investigation.
