State's Failure to Allege Sufficient Potential Conflicts Between the Positions In Its Complaint
In People v. Claar, 293 Ill. App. 3d 211, 215, 687 N.E.2d 557, 560, 227 Ill. Dec. 307 (1997), it was important that "although it is conceivable that there may be instances of interaction between the two entities, such matters would be rare, and, ordinarily, one would be expected to have very little interaction with the other." Claar, 293 Ill. App. 3d at 217, 687 N.E.2d at 561.
In addition, the court in Claar found that the State failed to allege sufficient potential conflicts between the positions in its complaint, when it merely listed, in a general fashion, the duties of each office and stated conclusorily that the duties conflicted. Claar, 293 Ill. App. 3d at 217, 687 N.E.2d at 561.
