A Chicago federal judge has dismissed most of a racketeering lawsuit against the Bandas Law Firm, but not without first blasting that firm’s reputation as one of the country’s most active objectors to class action settlements.

Ruling Tuesday in a proposed class action that Chicago-based plaintiffs firm Edelson PC brought in December 2016 against Texas-based Bandas, U.S. District Judge Rebecca Pallmeyer of the Northern District of Illinois wrote that Bandas’ settlement objections may be in “bad faith” and out-of-step with legal ethics standards. But, the judge concluded, the firm’s actions didn’t amount to a violation of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, as Edelson had alleged.
