Welch v. Nyberg, No. ____ (Ill. Cir. Ct., Cook County filed July 14, 2008)
Status: Temporary restraining order issued (July 16, 2008)

In a third lawsuit in a long-running feud, Emanuel “Chris” Welch, president of the District 209 (Proviso Township High Schools) school board sued blogger Carl Nyberg over a July 2, 2008 posting (redacted version) on Nyberg’s “Proviso Probe” blog (provisoprobe.blogspot.com) accusing Welch of being a “co-conspirator” in an “illegal kickback scheme” after he sought reimbursement for his legal expenses in another blog defamation case in which Welch is among the defendants (see Odelson v. Doe above). On July 16, Judge Martin S. Agran granted a temporary restraining order requiring Nyberg to remove this claim from the posting.
