Appellate court affirms dismissal of ex-Cook transportation worker's wrongful firing suit, despite 'intrigue'
A federal appeals panel has affirmed a lower court’s decision to dismiss a case "filled with intrigue" brought by a former Cook County Transportation Department worker who had accused the county of firing him under false pretenses.
A federal judge has allowed a former Cook County correctional officer to continue his suit accusing Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart of firing him in retaliation for supporting a political opponent of the sheriff. The judge, however, dismissed a number of other defendants within the sheriff's office from the case.
