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.
