Police fight lawsuit over misconduct documents

Police Misconduct A series of Chicago police documents which outline a wide range of police misconduct charges, and which were produced during a recent trial although not made public, are the focus of a lawsuit by an independent Chicago-area journalist.

Chicago journalist Jamie Kalven has filed a motion to intervene which seeks assorted police documents. The documents were produced during litigation in the recent Bond case, in which prosecutors sought private notes belonging to Kalven. Kalven won the suit.

The documents in question "include a list of Chicago police officers who have been repeatedly charged with official misconduct, documents that reveal how the CPD addresses or fails to address misconduct charges, and the complaint files of the individual officer defendants." According to Kalven, the City has until April 13 to respond to the motion. Read more.
