Lawyers for Sandi Jackson Claims ‘Harassment’ by Jesse Jackson Jr. Subpoenas


No signs of peace in Jesse Jackson Jr.’s contentious divorce from Sandi — in fact, just the opposite.

Former Chicago Ald. Sandi Jackson’s lawyer late Thursday accused Jesse’s legal team of dragging former Chicago police Superintendent Garry McCarthy and two other men into the case “for the sole purpose of harassing Sandra.”

Sandi wants a judge to sanction and fine the former congressman’s lawyers for what her lawyer calls an “unlawful and far-ranging fishing expedition for information” that encourages “unsupported innuendo.”

Subpoenas for McCarthy, his business partner Richard Simon and for Chicago cop James Love were filed by Jesse’s lawyers earlier this month, demanding details of any contact or business relationships between the men and Sandi.

But Simon and McCarthy both quickly rejected the suggestion that they have any details to turn over.

And Sandi’s lawyer Jessica Bank Interlandi wrote in her Thursday filing that the subpoenas should be thrown out by the judge.

News stories about the subpoenas appeared before she had received copies of the subpoenas, she added.
