CHICAGO — Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart is suing one of his deputies and the man’s wife for accusing Dart of domestic violence.

Dart filed a $300,000 defamation lawsuit claiming Deputy Howard Denham and his wife, Nicole, used a Yahoo email address to spread claims that Dart had attacked his wife last fall at their South Side home.

The emails also claimed Dart was involved in an extra-marital affair and that police were called to Dart’s home on several nights.

Police and sheriff’s officials said there was never a police response to Dart’s home on dates in question.
