A bit more than a month ago Rockford Federal Judge Frederick Kapala gave McHenry County Sheriff Keith Nygren’s attorney James Sotos and re-instated Deputy Sheriff Zane Seipler (who had the audacity to challenge Nygren in the GOP primary after being fired) a month to file 20 pages apiece.
The documents were to tell why Sotos thought Seipler’s case should be tossed and why Seipler attorney Blake Horwitz thought Sotos’ motion for contempt of court should be dismissed.
Since Seipler’s brief is shorter, I’ll run it first, a couple of the 15 pages each. Then, I’ll get to the Sotos brief.
PLAINTIFF’S MEMORANDUM OF LAW IN SUPPORT OF DENYING DEFENDANTS’ SANCTIONS MOTION
Now comes the Plaintiff by and through his counsel, Blake Horwitz and Dan Dorfman, and hereby responds to Defendants’ Motion for sanctions.
Even after lengthy and exhaustive evidentiary hearings, Defendants’ motion remains grounded largely in conclusory allegations, innuendo, and speculation, but little substantive evidence. As the evidence shows, Defendants have simply not met their burden and their motion should be dismissed.
