SHARE BGA sues to get records in Koschman case

The Better Government Association filed suit Thursday seeking the release of subpoenas and other records in the David Koschman case.

The BGA filed the lawsuit in Cook County circuit court against Koschman special prosecutor Dan K. Webb and the city of Chicago, accusing them of violating the state’s open-records law by refusing to make public certain documents in the case involving a nephew of former Mayor Richard M. Daley.

The public interest group is seeking a list of everyone Webb’s team interviewed in the course of his investigation, which resulted in Daley nephew Richard J. “R.J.” Vanecko pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter last year and serving two months in jail.
