Sarasota News Leader January 10, 2014 Page 44 Commissioner Susan Chapman was also named as a defendant in the suit. She has not settled, maintains her innocence and is preparing for depositions later this month in the case. Citizens for Sunshine filed suit in mid-October, charging that Atwell and Chapman met without public notice with a group of downtown merchants concerned about vagrancy and homelessness.
