No Decision Yet in Linda Belork Court Case

Jasper County Circuit Court Judge John Potter has not yet made a decision in the matter between former Starke County Treasurer Linda Belork and the Starke County Commissioners.

The Commissioners removed Belork from the office of Treasurer on August 13th after a state audit found financial discrepancies. The money has been accounted for, but a Temporary Restraining Order placed against Belork by the Commissioners is still in effect and prohibits Belork from returning to office.

A new Treasurer was selected by a Democrat caucus earlier this month. Kasey Clark was selected by caucus members in the position. When Clark was selected, she was reminded that if Belork wins her case in court, Belork will be reinstated as Starke County Treasurer.

Judge John Potter has 30 days, or until late-January, to determine whether or not to lift the restraining order.
