ARCOLA, IL. (ECWd) -
Since December is almost upon us, and the Hearing/Trial date is on December 16, 2014 for case numbers: 2013-MR-53, and 2014-MR-16, 17, and 20, I thought I would provide an update on how things have been progressing so far. (click here for all Arcola Township articles)
As you may remember, these were all consolidated and can be viewed here on judici.com. There has been a Motion for Protective Order filed in relation to production of documents requested by Defendant.
In case number 2014-MR-34, (click here for complaint) I have filed a Motion to Disqualify (with memorandum in support) defendant's attorney, and also filed a Motion for Protective Order in response to defendant's request for production of documents. Additionally, defendant filed an answer to the complaint, and I filed a response to their answer. There is no hearing date set yet, by I am trying to get it scheduled on December 16 also.
In case number 2014-MR-33, there have been several documents filed: complaint, defendant answer to complaint, defendant's request for production of documents, and plaintiff response to defendant answer. No hearing date scheduled at this time.
We still believe we will prevail against Arcola Township's attempts at keeping public records from the public. When these cases are finished we will calculate the actual cost to Arcola Township residents and make sure they are fully aware of how their money has been spent.
