There has been no action in two years in a 2009 class action filed by a Wood River electric company that has led a number of class actions over faxed advertisements.

The last action in a 2009 suit filed by Locklear Electric against the Taylorville Chiropractic Clinic occurred in June 2009.

Locklear filed the suit alleging the defendant violated federal laws concerning faxed advertisements. The plaintiff claims unwanted, illegal faxes cost it and other class members money in the form of paper, ink and other office supplies.

The suit is one of a number of faxed advertisement class actions Locklear has led.

Locklear won a default judgment in another 2008 suit filed against American Business Lending and Christopher Parks over the ads.

Although Madison County Circuit Judge Andreas Matoesian had been set to enter damages in the American Business Lending case, no judgment has been entered as yet, according to the case's docket sheet.

Attorney Robert Sprague and others represent Locklear in the Taylorville case where Madison County Circuit Judge Dennis Ruth presides.

Attorney Lanny Darr represents the company in the 2008 case.

No attorneys are listed for the defendants in either case.

The Taylorville suit case is Madison case number 09-L-606.

The American Business lending suit is Madison case number 08-L-1131.
