Editor Pete Gonigan summarizes the case like this:

After Nygren cleared Zinke, FEN asked for a copy of the investigation since the Undersheriff’s Nygren’s choice to succeed him, but the Sheriff’s Office turned the request down claiming it was part of ‘an adjudication.’ The Illinois Attorney General ruled in May that it wasn’t but the Sheriff’s Office still won’t turn over the report.”
The next court date is January 29th.
