R.E.A.CH. tax protest update
R.E.A.CH. announces that Michael OBrien has filed on behalf of 8,776 tax objectors in this years lawsuit against District 205s illegal use of the tort fund. The school district had been using the Tort Immunity Act to fund the remedies ordered by the federal court. After the Illinois Supreme Courts decision that the tort fund was used illegally by the school district on October 26, 2000, Michael OBrien extended the deadline for filing tax objections to Nov. 10, 2000. R.E.A.CH. received more than 1,000 forms in the last two weeks.
