Madison Co., IL. (ECWd) –
A Freedom of Information Act lawsuit was filed against Madison County State’s Attorney yesterday.
The suit alleges that the Madison County State’s Attorney Tom Gibbons did not respond to a FOIA Request submitted on July 17, 2020, and later amended on July 18, 2020.
According to the below press release, in his FOIA requests, Dorman sought records related to alleged “political fundraising on county time in the office of State’s Attorney going back to 2006, as well as his involvement in the task force.”
The FOI Act requires a response within 5 business days, and this suit alleges the State’s Attorney never responded to the request for public records.
