Coles Co. (ECWd) -
Local Coles County residents Rob Perry and Rex Dukeman have filed their COMPLAINT FOR WRIT OF QUO WARRANTO against Coles County. There request for permission to file this case was started clear back in June of this year. We covered that filing in this article.
Quo Warranto is the legal method used to determine if a person has a legal right to hold the public office that he or she occupies. To keep it simple, the county is being sued for the illegal contract they entered into with a private citizen to do the work of the County Supervisor of Assessments. Well established law forbids the contracting of a person to do the job of another public officer who is already getting paid for that job.
We predict the courts will rule in the citizen's favor as the evidence against the county is overwhelming.
