WINNEBAGO COUNTY (WREX) — Winnebago County Board Chairman Frank Haney has lost his first attempt at regaining powers that were stripped away by the county board.
Judge Donna Honzel denied a temporary restraining order filed by Haney Tuesday afternoon.
The restraining order was filed in an attempt to temporarily regain numerous powers he lost through ordinance changes this year while his lawsuit against the board was adjudicated.
Haney’s lawsuit against the county board will still continue, but his hope of regaining his powers before that lawsuit concludes is over.
This story will continue to be updated throughout the day.
