A request by the Journal & Topics Newspapers
for a copy of a police report filed, it's believed, by a former city employee who alleged that she
was sexually harassed several years ago by a Des Plaines
alderman will not be made public, a private attorney hired by the city has decided.
...Todd Wessell, editor and publisher of the local newspaper group, said that such an appeal will be filed.He
added that specific amounts of money paid by a local unit of government or its representatives related to a legal action taken against the government, should be part of the public record.
