The city of Chicago has dropped its effort to sue the estate of Quintonio LeGrier, the 19-yr-old guy shot to death, along with a bystander, Bettie Jones, 55, by a Chicago cop, Officer Robert Rialmo, in 2015.
“We are consistently evaluating and reevaluating our lawful tactics, and we have identified the motion is not the finest class of action,” officials said Friday.
The move arrived one particular day following attorneys for the city filed a motion to sue the LeGrier estate.
Bill Foutris, a law firm who represents the loved ones of the guy killed by Officer Robert Rialmo, said he was notified of the withdrawal all over 9 a.m. Friday.
“The city has made a decision to do the ideal thing by withdrawing this case but is continue to throwing away taxpayer pounds by refusing to glimpse at all the points that establish this was an unjustified taking pictures,” Foutris said.
While this finishes the city’s case from the LeGrier loved ones, Foutris says the family’s lawsuit from the city and Rialmo will continue on. It is scheduled to go to demo in June.
A civil case introduced by the loved ones of Jones, as effectively as a go well with by Rialmo from the city and the Chicago Law enforcement Department, also is established for demo in June, Foutris said.
