ARCOLA, IL. (ECWd) -
There are currently four separate Freedom Of Information Act civil suits against Arcola Township. In the oldest suit, 2013-MR-53, the Court dismissed Arcola Township's motion for dismissal and ordered further pleading within 21 days (article here). This further pleading came in the form of a Motion to Consolidate the four cases into one, claiming it would same time, money, speed up the process..
I filed an Objection to the Motion to Consolidate for case nos: 2014-MR-16, 2014-MR-17, and 2014-MR-20 explaining that these three cases were pro se and I did not want to slow progress on the earliest case. My attorney has, or soon will, file the Objection for the earliest case.
A Hearing is scheduled to hear the Motion to Consolidate, and my Objection, on August 11, at 10:30 a.m. in the Douglas County Courthouse.
