Yesterday, Clinical Professor of Law and Director of the Civil Rights and Director of the Mandel Clinic's Civil Rights and Police Accountability Project Craig Futterman, along with Northwestern's Locke Bowman, filed a motion opposing the City of Chicago's attempt to have set aside a federal jury's finding that there exists a "code of silence" within the Chicago Police Department. This code, the jury found, prevents repercussions against abusive officers like Anthony Abbate, famously captured on video beating female bartender Karolina Obrycka. A status hearing on the city's motion will be held tomorrow. In a Tribune article published on Tuesday, Futterman called the Emanuel administration's motion an attempt to create a "code of silence on the code of silence." You can read more about Futterman's motion in a Tribune article published yesterday and updated today, and check out his commentary to the AP and ABC after the original verdict was rendered.
