Many police officers find corruption to be intolerable; others become the victim of institutional pressures designed to force officers to falsify data. We represent police officers who find themselves in these uncomfortable situations.
At our firm, we have represented and currently represent many officers who have been persecuted because they have chosen to take a straight and narrow path. Here are a few of the cases presently being litigated at our firm:
Seipler v. Sheriff Keith Nygren: An active Sheriff Deputy reports racial profiling and in response is terminated. Litigation generated front page headlines from the Chicago Tribune and other local papers wherein evidence came forth that the sitting Sheriff had fabricated racial profiling data to cover up the misconduct as well as the basis for Mr. Seipler’s termination.
Wade v. Maywood: An active police officer for the Maywood Police Department was criminally prosecuted and later found not guilty of forwarning an informant as to a particular criminal investigation that related to the informant. Maywood officers fabricated data in support of criminal prosecution.
Duffy v. Judge Haberkorn: Civil action against a sitting Judge whereby she accused a Chicago Police Officer of stalking her. After charges were fully investigated, Internal Affairs for the City of Chicago found that the Judge’s claims were physically impossible and otherwise false. After a full exoneration, our firm initiated litigation against Judge Haberkorn for falsifying data against this innocent officer.
