Safeguard Properties filed a motion Tuesday morning to dismiss a lawsuit filed by Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan that claims the field service company disposed occupants from their homes illegally.

Madigan’s lawsuit, which was filed in Cook County Circuit Court on Sept. 10, says that Safeguard Properties allegedly locked homeowners out of their housing units even though they weren’t supposed to, removed personal property from homes, and shut off all utilities despite clear evidence that homes were legally occupied. All of these actions violate the Illinois Consumer Fraud Act.
