DeKalb city clerk lawsuit tossed by judge after clerk sought relief over elected duties dispute

The city clerk remained mum Wednesday about whether or not he plans to appeal the judge’s decision.

DeKalb City Clerk Sasha Cohen speaks Friday, Jan. 13, 2023, during a City of DeKalb Electoral Board hearing. The hearing was held to decide if incumbent Scott McAdams, who is running unopposed for DeKalb’s 5th Ward aldermanic seat, should be removed from the ballot due to objections filed by two residents regarding signatures and filing procedure.
