Judge: FOIA Case Against City Can Move Forward

A Sangamon County judge has rejected a motion by the City of Springfield to dismiss a lawsuit filed against city police by Pure News reporter Calvin Christian.


Christian is suing the city over the destruction of Springfield Police Department records, and that case will be allowed to proceed.


Judge John Belz says the focus of the case will be on whether the city’s document destruction was done in good or bad faith.


Several other motions by the city to limit the scope of the case or the discovery process were denied, although the judge did agree to a motion to reduce the overall number of counts in Christian’s complaint.
