Turing Alleges Did Not Attend Illinois ADI Events To Target Customers In Illinois

Turing has now changed its defense, originally they alleged it "does not target its marketing, sales, or commercial activity" in Illinois, now Turing admits they do have Illinois employees attend trade shows in Illinois but that they did not target customers in Illinois.
