Daily Herald Takes a Look at Algonquin Township Fight — 12 Comments

  1. There’s more info in this article than the NWH reports.

    Unlike the Northwest it seems the Daily actually does research into the court documents.

    “Court documents also indicate Miller intends to file a motion to dismiss the case, alleging Gasser doesn’t have standing to probe previous township policies and procedures.”

  2. The taxpayers demand and deserve TRANSPARENCY from every government organization and official.
    Motion to dismiss …

    DENIED, Tic tock, tic tock, tic tock.

  3. “Miller intends to file a motion to dismiss the case, alleging Gasser doesn’t have standing to probe previous township policies and procedures.”

    THIS is Millers’ defense to all these allegations!?

    You either broke the law or you didn’t, Miller!

    This is the sign of a man who doesn’t have a prayer.

  4. I hear the man who doesn’t have a prayer won a big motion today.

    Further in front of another judge gasser had his lawsuit against 150 DISMISSED yesterday.

    So who doesn’t gave a prayer?

  5. hey dookie,oh I mean doodie, your man and his family is off to jail

  6. Poor Doodie thought he could bail out his buddy.

    Doesn’t seem to be working out now, is it?

  7. doodie????

    do you really think the millers , and the lee woman did nothing wrong?????

    I can appreciate loyalty, but blind loyalty???

  8. I wish the folks commenting here would assume the rest of us have no idea what they are referring to (I don’t) and not post interesting but vague things like “I hear the man who doesn’t have a prayer won a big motion today.”

  9. Joek:I heard that Hanlon was told by the judge if he has nothing new to bring to court, don’t bother refiling again because you don’t have a chance of winning with what you already presented.
    Well?

    On November 16, the McHenry County Circuit Court dismissed a lawsuit filed by the Algonquin Township Road District, in which the District sought to declare its collective bargaining agreement with the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150 null and void.

    Road District attorney Robert Hanlon argued that this particular agreement exceeded the authority of the Highway Commissioner, but the judge dismissed the case, saying that the Road District did not state a claim upon which relief could be granted.

    The court allowed the Road District 21 days to refile the action if it could present a meritorious challenge to the agreement.

    The next court date is currently scheduled for January 12, 2018.

    “We are pleased with the judge’s dismissal of this lawsuit,” said Local 150 President-Business Manager James M. Sweeney.

    “It is our hope that the taxpayers in Algonquin Township will not have fund additional litigation on an argument that we believe was clearly refuted.”
