The Sun-Times has learned that Treasurer Dan Rutherford will not release the findings of an independent investigation into sexual harassment this week.
“On the advice of counsel and due to the federal lawsuit — no further information on the independent investigation will be released — except through the court,” Mary Frances Bragiel said.
There will be no press conference tomorrow.
“There is a federal lawsuit that has been filed — under federal rules, we are not supposed to be talking to the whole world about the case — we are supposed to be talking about it in the courtroom,” said Peter Andjelkovich, a private attorney.
