CASEYVILLE, IL (KTVI)-- A judge told the Caseyville police chief he still had a job Friday morning, but he isn't sure for how long.

Chief Jose Alvarez has been fired twice in recent months by the village's mayor.

There have been heated confrontations during recent board of trustees meetings. It started when Mayor Ken Black fired Alvarez.

There was a restraining order filed to block the firing.

That restraining order, that forced state police to attend a meeting earlier this week, has been dissolved.

However, Friday morning, it became clear that the mayor can't fire the chief without due process.

Village leaders will meet again March 19th.

    Just one redneck defending another redneck. Duh. Does anyone really think a redneck judge is going to rule against his redneck police chief buddy?
