Judge again dismisses Sherman suit against library

Daily Herald report

A Cook County judge last week dismissed Buffalo Grove resident Rob Sherman's motion to reconsider a lawsuit against Indian Trails Public Library that sought to nullify a property tax increase narrowly approved by voters in April.

Sherman and four other Buffalo Grove residents filed the complaint against the Wheeling library, claiming officials improperly used public funds to electioneer in favor of the tax rate increase.

Cook County Judge Mark Ballard first dismissed the lawsuit on July 29.

"I've got 30 days to get this thing appealed," Sherman said when reached Wednesday.
