Court of Common Pleas Denies Claims Against
Gregg Township Lawsuit Decided – Court of Common Pleas Denies Claims
In September of last year, a lawsuit in the form of a writ of mandamus was filed against Gregg Township. The lawsuit claimed that the Township had engaged in a series of wrongful practices regarding the public disclosure of information and sought more than $100,000 in penalties for those alleged wrongdoings. In December, the Court of Common Pleas dismissed much of the lawsuit and scheduled a hearing on the remaining matters.
Earlier this week, the Court of Common Pleas denied the remaining claims in the lawsuit, thus ending the lawsuit against the Township. In simple terms, the court ruled that the Township had not broken any laws regarding transparency or the public disclosure of Township information.
As per its standard practices, the Township’s representatives will not be commenting any further on this matter. The Township nonetheless looks forward to putting this matter behind it and focusing on its primary work: serving the people of Gregg Township.
