Judge appoints special prosecutor to investigate police torture

In April, Judge Paul Biebel appointed a special prosecutor to investigate allegations that Chicago police commander Jon Burge and his henchmen engaged in torture. The ruling indicated that State’s Attorney Richard Devine could objectively investigate torture charges. Read the brief that documents Burge's crimes and helped win this historic victory.

The decision was heralded as a victory by University of Chicago lawyers who have been campaigning for months for the appointment of a special prosecutor.
