First Electric Newspaper Awarded $5,000 for Sheriff Keith Nygren’s FOIA Violation

As I pointed out earlier, First Electric Newspaper’s Pete Gonigam’s article of Judge Thomas Meyer’s ruling in his Freedom of Information Suit against Keith Nygren’s Sheriff’s Office is a must read.

Gonigam is in line for a $5,000 check from the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office, the maximum amount the law allows.

That order has been delayed a month by Judge Thomas Meyer.

Legal fees to be paid Gonigam’s attorney, Mary Gardner, have not yet been determined.

It will be address on May 29th.

Gonigam did not print the court order, so I shall.

  1. here is what should be done…

    Nygren and Zinke should pay the fine and also for FEN legal expenses plus $50,000 for aggravation, and lost time……

    the county should cut the checks to Pete at FEN
    then hold all retirement payments to Zinke and Nygren until everything is paid in full.
    T

  2. Couldn’t agree with you more.

    Charges should also be brought against Zinke and Nygren.

  3. Not a suprise…

    after the election their would have been no hunger by current elected officials to defend the former Sheriff’s decisions…

    and let’s face it if anything First electric newspaper was not pro Nygren or anti Prim/Bianchi.
