DuPage Co. (ECWd) -
In January of this year, we reported, as did the Chicago Tribune and Daily Herald, three College of DuPage (COD) Trustees filed a lawsuit against COD's law firms seeking records applicable to COD related work.
At the time it was big news locally because of the boycotting of meetings by those who filed the suit.
Here we are nine months later, and I could not find a single story on the status of that lawsuit, so what was newsworthy before the primary is no longer newsworthy? One can only wonder if this was an attempt to bring negative press for a particular county board candidate that happens to represent COD. If so, it failed on multiple fronts.
The case was dismissed with prejudice September 15, 2016. I guess those three trustees are not having a good month as not only was their lawsuit dismissed with prejudice but they now must face the music of the scathing Auditor General audit of COD that points out a laundry list of failings by the past Board and Administration.
