Orland Park, IL. (ECWd) -
According to a FOIA dump that was forwarded to me this evening, the Orland Park Public Library has officially stated that their marketing/information officer, Bridget Bittman, is no longer employed with them.

In recent months, Ms. Bittman had filed a defamation lawsuit against Ms. Fox and Mr. DuJan (that we consider a SLAPP suit) for their having shined the light on issues with child pornography and other disgusting things being accessed in the OPPL, and nothing being done about it.
Most Counts in the Complaint were dismissed and Fox filed a counter suit against Bittman. Both are still pending adjudication.
A notice for job opening appeared on the OPPL a week or so ago and now Ms. Bittman's linkedin page shows her former employment as the OPPL and her current employment as a "Great nonprofit"
I have a FOIA request in for copies of any resignations and/or severance packages. Will update when the records are received.
