(Park Ridge, Ill.) – Facing a challenge by Teamsters Local 700 to the Cook County Merit Board’s ability to function, attorneys for the Sheriff and the Board agreed in open court this week that they would no longer conduct hearings or decide cases while Governor Rauner considers recently passed legislative changes to the Board. Because the defendants effectively agreed to the most significant relief sought by the union, a judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County saw no need to enter any further orders at that time. However, the judge invited Teamsters Local 700 to come back if anything changed or if the defendants did not live up to the representations made to court.
