CHICAGO (STMW) – Itasca-based Hamilton Partners filed a lawsuit Wednesday against Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White alleging his office caused a multimillion-dollar real-estate deal to fall through by failing to process some paperwork.

The real-estate company said it had invested $1 million into a 26-acre commercial development in Vernon Hills, which was set to include a Dominick’s Foods, Walgreen’s and Fifth Third Bank, according to a suit filed in Cook County Circuit Court.

According to the suit, the plans stalled when White’s office did not process some critical forms.

White’s office did not immediately respond to a voicemail left Wednesday evening.
