Appellate court hears former chief’s lawsuit


DECATUR — The court battle between the former police chief and city continued Tuesday.

Brad Sweeney appeared in front of three appellate court judges in Springfield.

He’s appealing a judge’s decision to dismiss his wrongful termination case. Sweeney was fired last year.

The city’s lawyers say they expect a written decision from the judges in three-to-five weeks.
