Monroe County, IL. (ECWd) -
Today, a Monroe County Circuit Judge issued an Order of Nolle Prosequi (to formally abandon the action) in the criminal misdemeanor case against Washy's Saloon.
Washy's Saloon was previously cited for being open for business and permitting indoor service of patrons pursuant to an alleged Rule of the Department of Public Health.
State's Attorney Chris Hitzemann filed a Motion For Nolle Prosequi in this case. He cited the lack of any prohibition of service of indoor patrons found in the alleged Rules.
