Aldermen Table Release of Executive Session, Mayor To Waive Attorney-Client Privilege for Investigation

The minutes and audio recording of a closed-door meeting about Springfield’s police file shredding scandal will remain under wraps for now.


Aldermen tabled an ordinance to release the record of that meeting, based upon a request from the State’s Attorney’s Appellate Prosecutor’s Office, which is investigating the document shredding.


Mayor Mike Houston says publicly releasing the discussion could compromise that ongoing investigation.


But Houston is waiving attorney-client privilege, in order to allow outgoing Corporation Counsel Mark Cullen to talk with investigators about his role in the mess, without violating ethics rules.
