Pending case could hold up decision in jail death

MONROE - A pending case with similar details to those of Kyle Peotter's death while he was incarcerated in the Green County Jail could decide the outcome of civil action that Peotter's mother and stepfather have brought against local and state government agencies. Green County Circuit Court Judge Thomas Vale said Tuesday in a status conference he will keep an eye on the Wisconsin Supreme Court's decision on the related case, but until then he will continue awaiting discovery from an ongoing investigation into Peotter's death. A Monroe County case with similar facts could be taken up by the state Supreme Court in the next few months and would likely negate litigation against local and state governmental agencies in Green County, Vale said.
