A case that was dismissed this month by Circuit Judge Michael West has been remanded back to St. Clair County Circuit Court, by the Court of Appeals in an opinion that was issued Tuesday.  The lawsuit is reported to have been filed against Supervisor Kelly Fiscelli and Cottrellville Township after the woman cut short the three-minute public comment periods for two residents, and former trustee Michael Zoran, during a May 8, 2013 board meeting.  While West had ruled that the township had violated the Open Meetings Act, he dismissed the case that alleged Fiscelli was personally liable for the incident.  The Court of Appeals ruled that Fiscelli shortened the allotted speaking time, particularly during a time when they were critiquing Fiscelli in a harsh commentary, which, the opinion reads, “none of these facts are conclusive, but they are suggestive that Lisco shortened these speakers’ times with intent to violet the (Open Meetings Act).”  Fiscelli is currently facing at least one recall, which cites the Open Meetings Act violation as a reason for the action. She will face three challengers in the November recall election.
