A DuPage County judge on Thursday refused to dismiss a countersuit brought by the Glen Ellyn Park District against a contractor that built the district's recreation center, which has had leaks in its roof since opening in 2010. T.A. Bowman Constructors originally filed suit against the district last summer, arguing that parks officials refused to allow work crews the opportunity to correct the roof leaks at the Ackerman Sports & Fitness Center. The district followed with a suit of its own soon after. Judge Dorothy French denied Bowman's request to throw out the park district's suit on procedural grounds, which allows the legal dispute to continue.
