DOUGLAS CO. (ECWd) -
A temporary blow was dealt to Plaintiff Kraft in Douglas County Circuit Court yesterday with the FOIA lawsuits against Arcola Township.
In a Directed Verdict in 2013-MR-53, the Court ruled in favor of Arcola Township, claiming that Plaintiff had failed to establish evidence.
In a Directed Verdict for 2014-MR-16, 17, and 20, the Court ruled in favor of Arcola Township, claiming Kraft had failed to establish evidence that he had ever even submitted a FOIA request to the township.
Plaintiff is considering a Motion to Reconsider, or in the alternative, an Appeal of the verdict.
Much more information will be provided when a decision is made.
There are still three more unresolved FOIA suits pending: 2014-MR-33, 34, and 56.
