Burkhart files SLAPP suit v. ECWd, et al –

January 8, 2016   ·   6 Comments


DuPage Co., IL. (ECWd) –

A College of DuPage Foundation Board Member has filed suit in DuPage County Circuit Court, Case number 2015L001244 against the Edgar County Watchdogs Incorporated, and three other defendants.  (Chicago Tribune coverage here)

Carla Burkhart, owner of Herricane Graphics, has filed what we classify as a SLAPP Lawsuit, a Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation.

This suit, in our opinion, is baseless.  We stand by our publications, and will vigorously defend this suit designed to chill criticism and petitioning of government and its operations.

We encourage you to read the lawsuit and read the articles complained about.

  3. CC says:

    Leave DuPage, stay in DuPage, stay or go?? Definitely stay. Ms. B. has spoken.

  4. It seems like the lawyers involved on both sides of this issue are the winners so far in this never ending scandal at COD. How many millions of wasted dollars were and will be wasted on these lawsuits ultimately? These lawyers involved probably love John Kraft and Kirk Allen of Edgar County Watchdogs for all the extra business they generate for them. Have a nice day.

  5. Woof!
