CHICAGO—Closing arguments are set to begin at 10 a.m. in the federal lawsuit accusing Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart and others of discrimination.
21 sheriff's deputies filed the suit, claiming they were harassed and passed over for promotions after they supported Dart's political opponent in the 2006 democratic primary election.
Dart says that had nothing to do with the election, pointing out none of the plaintiffs was fired and some have since been promoted.
Closing statements are expected to last about two hours.
The case will go to the jury Tuesday afternoon.
