Logic case still set for jury trial

Feb. 16, 2009

After a final pre-trial conference this morning, former South Milwaukee mayoral candidate Jim Logic is still scheduled to appear for a jury trial on Wednesday, March 4, though attorneys in the case said they’ll try to reach an agreement before then.
 
At the conference, Assistant District Attorney David Feiss said Chippewa Valley Cheese, the plaintiff in the case, has not yet reviewed a new settlement proposal submitted by Logic’s attorney, Tom Simon.
 
Feiss referred to the proposal as a “potential resolution” to the case, but did not give further details. Neither attorney immediately returned phone calls.
 
Chippewa Valley Cheese alleges that while Logic was chief executive officer of the company in 2005, he sold $28,000 in cotija cheese and kept the proceeds.
 
Logic, 62, was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court last May for felony theft from a business setting. If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $25,000.
 
Both attorneys agreed to leave the trial scheduled, pending a settlement. If one isn’t reached, the trial will be held in Room 313 of the Milwaukee County Courthouse’s Public Safety Building, 901 N. Ninth St., at 10 a.m. Wednesday, March 4.
