Rutherford denies the claims. The lawsuit came in the midst of Rutherford's failed bid for the Republican nomination for Illinois governor.

The Pantagraph in Bloomington reports that in a filing Wednesday, Michalowski told U.S. District Judge Joan Lefkow he has hired new attorneys to help him in the case and they needed more time to craft a response to Rutherford's motion for a dismissal.

Rutherford's attorneys say Michalowski's allegations don't detail how he was harassed or discriminated against.
