Chicago – Anthony J Peraica & Associates is appealing Judge Leroy K. Martin’s July 17, 2012 ruling to dismiss with prejudice, a lawsuit they filed against Riverside Brookfield School District 208.
The suit, in which Peraica and Taxpayers United of America (TUA) are plaintiffs, charges the school district with illegal electioneering in its failed attempt to pass a property tax increase referendum in the April 5, 2011 election.
“We are filing this appeal to protect the taxpayers from financial abuse by unions and to assert, as a matter of principle, that school unions and administration cannot conspire to expend taxpayer dollars to promote a pro-tax-increase referendum on a taxpayer dime,” stated Peraica. “If the unions and administration want to borrow money or increase taxes, they must spend their own money to do so.”
Tim Sprague of Anthony J Peraica & Associates will assist in the appeal process. Oral arguments will be requested.
