Judge Dismisses Courthouse Case

A contractor may soon begin tearing down the Rock Island County courthouse.

This afternoon, Peoria County Judge Jodi Hoos dismissed a lawsuit filed by preservation groups and individuals who want to prevent demolition of the 122-year-old building. 

A temporary restraining order has also been lifted. 

One of the plaintiffs, Landmarks Illinois, says the group of plaintiffs will study the judge's written ruling, explore options, and decide whether to appeal (see statement below).
