A Sangamon County judge is refusing to dismiss the remaining counts in a pending lawsuit against the City of Springfield over the early destruction of internal affairs records.
The City has admitted to wrongdoing and agreed to pay a $5,000 fine for shredding the file of Deputy Police Chief Cliff Buscher.
But city officials argue that the rest of Calvin Christian's request for records was unduly burdensome and should be thrown out.
However, the judge has refused to do that. Instead, lawyers for the city and Christian will meet again today to further discuss the case.
