Alexandra Block and Dan Feeney Win Appellate Victory for Large Media Client in Precedent-setting Freedom of Information Act Case
FEBRUARY 28, 2018

On May 9, 2017, Alexandra Block and Dan Feeney won an appellate victory for The Chicago Tribune in a precedent-setting Freedom of Information Act case, in which the Illinois Appellate Court, Second District, held that the College of DuPage Foundation and College of DuPage must disclose a subpoena under Illinois’ open records law. This was the first Illinois case to determine whether a non-profit dedicated solely to supporting a public college must comply with FOIA. Following the appeal, Ms. Block and Mr. Feeney also secured a full recovery of The Chicago Tribune’s attorneys’ fees in the Circuit Court of DuPage County.
