GLEN ELLYN, Ill. – There was a big development Tuesday night at the state’s largest community college: trustees at the College of DuPage voted to fire their president, a man at the center of a lot of controversy and several investigations.

The trustees voted in Glen Ellyn Tuesday 4-1 to President Robert Breuder about five months before he was scheduled to step down.

What this does is strip him of his $763,000 severance package and set the stage for what could be an expensive legal battle.

Breuder has not commented on any of this. However, his lawyer has repeatedly said that if the controversial college president was fired and his severance package cut, he’d sue. They say that’s still the plan.
