Chicago, IL. (ECWd) -
Kirk Allen and the Edgar County Watchdogs have filed suit in Cook County Circuit Court alleging that the Illinois Department of Public Health has violated the Freedom Of Information Act.
Kirk Allen had requested public records related to the IDPH's COVID-19 data published in a webinar, consisting of the data located in the pie chart on page 13 of that document.
IDPH responded by extending their time to comply with the FOIA request.
IDPH failed to provide any of the requested public records.
Almost 6 months have passed since the original FOIA was sent.
