Chicago ordered to pay $62,500 in lawsuit records dispute

CHICAGO (AP) — The city of Chicago has been ordered to pay $62,500 for withholding records in a lawsuit over a police shooting.

The Chicago Tribune says it’s the eighth time that Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration has been penalized for withholding potential evidence in police misconduct cases.

Federal Judge Joan Gottschall says the city acted in “bad faith” when it made little effort to provide records to a lawyer who is suing on behalf of Divonte Young’s family. The 20-year-old was killed by an officer five years ago.

Police said Young fired, but no gun was found.

Attorney H. Candace Gorman was seeking documents from a city agency that investigates officer-involved shootings. The judge says a city attorney tried to get the documents but ran into interference. The process took more than a year.
