Here is an interesting lawsuit, yes another one against the fine City of Northlake Illinois and Police Chief Dennis Koletsos.
Brings up the question of whether an Officer who is off on FMLA have to go to court when subpoenaed?
Without knowing the specifics in this case, it sounds like this officer refused to go to court while off on FMLA and was eventually fired.
Does this officer have a good case? We will see…
