Citation To Discover Assets Filed Against Village Of Dolton –

Dolton, Ill. (ECWd) –

Another consequence of Dolton Mayor Tiffany Henyard failing to pay bills and Judgments.

A Motion for Citation to Discover Assets has been filed against the Village of Dolton for their nonpayment of a Judgment against Dolton in the amount of $220,194.56.

This is the Graham v Dolton case in Cook County (17L9898), where Graham alleged the Village of Dolton engaged in Retaliation of the Whistleblower, Violation of the Public Employee Disability Act, Violation of the Illinois Wage Payment and Collection Act against Dolton and Robert Collins Jr., and Attorney Fees in Wage Payment.

In 2019, the village of Dolton and Graham entered into a settlement, with the court retaining jurisdiction for awarding of attorney fees. The court granted $100,000 in attorney fees. The village appealed, and the Appellate Court remanded it back to Cook County Circuit Court.

On or about February 28, 2024, the circuit court entered an Order granting an award to Graham of $203,018.00 in attorney fees and $13,147.16 in costs.

Since then, the village has failed to tender the payment pursuant to this order and is now faced with a Citation to Discover Assets, which could freeze the village’s bank accounts in an amount three times the amount of the judgment until this judgment is paid, presumably with interest.

    The citizens of Dolton shoiuld be thinking about filing a citation to discover the liabilities of the city of Dolton.

    Because they are going to be paying most of these liabilities at some point!

    Plus some hefty legal and forensic accounting bills to figure out just how ‘excellent’ things were under their Supermayor.

    However the citation to discopver l;iabilities is probably not a thing!
