    Default Teamsters member says ex-Local 710 CEO removed amid embezzlement probe must repay $1.

    A member of a Teamsters union local representing thousands of workers in Illinois, Indiana and Iowa has asked a judge for permission to sue former local union officials who were removed last year amid accusations of embezzlement and corruption, and to force those former officials to repay hundreds of thousands of dollars in salaries the potential lawsuit says were wrongly paid at a time the organization was otherwise financially insolvent.

    On Dec. 14, plaintiff Joseph Kouba filed a motion in Chicago federal court, asking the court to allow him to file a complaint for breach of fiduciary duty against Patrick Flynn, former secretary treasurer and chief executive officer of Mokena-based Teamsters Local 710, as well as six other officials Kouba said helped Flynn carry out his alleged misdeeds. Fellow named defendants in the action include Michael Sweeney, Gerald Pauli, Charles DeCola, Larry Alexander, Anthony Lamy and Kevin Wagoner.

    All seven officials were removed from their leadership posts by Teamsters national leadership in 2014, and the local organization was placed under trusteeship after an investigation uncovered an alleged embezzlement scheme. According to published reports, the investigation found the officials used union funds to obtain thousands of gift cards, as well as automobiles, expensive furniture and premium food, among other items.

    Good luck with this. After all this is Chicago.

    I hope they all do time in a real prison, not a country club.

    One has to wonder if the white paper agreements now in the shredder had anything to do with Flynn's falling out with the Hofficers.
