Schlenkert's case - over or still next week?

Rumor has it that Judge McIntyre had ruled in favor of McHenry County Sheriff's Deputy Bob Schlenkert in his case against the Sheriff's Department Merit Commission. But when I called the courthouse later in the day, a court clerk told me the case is still scheduled for next week.

I thought it strange that Judge McIntyre would have ruled early and issued a decision on a case that was continued from last Monday, Dec. 15, until next Tuesday, Dec. 23. If she did, that deprived the press of an opportunity to be present when the case was heard again (as scheduled) and to hear her decision in her own words. Is this what happened?

Certainly, this is an interesting twist of events. When more is available, you can read it here.
