The lawsuit is asking the Court to certify the case as a class action on behalf of all tollway users. TUA will ask the court to enforce the original intent of the tollway legislation and end the Illinois tollway system. If the Court allows the temporary restraining order, it will then be asked to consider an injunction to stop the toll increase.
