The trial court dismissed the case because, as prison guards had controverted Dye’s sworn allegations, he must have been lying. He appealed.
On appeal, the Appellate Court of Illinois, 4th District, affirmed the trial court, holding that it was the trial judge’s job to decide who was more credible. See: Dye v. Pierce, 369 Ill.App.3d 683, 868 N.E.2d 293 (Ill.App. 4 Dist. 2006).
