A status hearing for a libel case involving DeKalb’s police chief starts at 9 a.m. Wednesday at the DeKalb County Courthouse.
DeKalb police chief Gene Lowery sued Tom Salvi in 2016 for saying what he calls untrue things that could have cost Lowery his job and is asking for $300,000 from Salvi.
Salvi, a physician and former state Representative candidate, was arrested in Crystal Lake in 2010 for disorderly conduct after allegedly asking if he could undress a woman in a parking lot. Those charges were later dropped.
Lowery was deputy police chief there at the time.
