U.S. District Judge Sara Ellis blasted attorney Dana Kurtz & throws out a $260,000.00 jury verdict AGAINST Chicago Police Officer William Szura that Gay Lesbian Parade Goer Nicole Tomaskovic was trying to scam

Judge throws out jury verdict against off-duty Chicago cop, cites lawyer's conduct

Citing repeated misconduct by an attorney, a federal judge took the rare step Friday of throwing out a jury verdict in favor of a woman who alleged an off-duty Chicago police officer attacked her during a road-rage incident on the Stevenson Expressway nearly nine years ago.

U.S. District Judge Sara Ellis blasted attorney Dana Kurtz, saying she engaged in a "pervasive" pattern of misconduct at trial — making repeated misrepresentations to the court, asking questions to deliberately elicit barred testimony and improperly coaching witnesses. The judge also concluded Kurtz had given documents to the Chicago Tribune during the trial in an effort to improperly influence the jury.

"While it is possible that each individual incident, standing alone, should rightly be given the benefit of the doubt and would not merit a severe sanction, the continuous, repetitive nature of the misconduct, the fact that she did not improve her conduct in the face of numerous warnings, and (her) history of censure support the court's finding that her conduct at trial was willful, egregious, and not entitled to a presumption of unintentionality," the judge wrote in her 31-page opinion.

The ruling not only overturns the jury's verdict in December awarding $260,000 in damages to Nicole Tomaskovic for the July 2007 incident involving Officer William Szura but also ends litigation over whether the city had a pattern and practice of covering up for the actions of bad officers.

Ellis, who was an assistant corporation counsel defending Chicago police officers against allegations of wrongdoing between 2004 and 2008, said she recognized that overturning a jury verdict and finding in favor of the losing side "is the most severe sanction available in litigation and should not be imposed lightly."

The officer should sue for a frivolous lawsuit being brought
against him and get this Jewish Cunt excuse for a lawyer
to pay his legal fees. Teach the Lesbos a lesson.
LGBT be the downfall of this Nation. Vote TRUMP.

Just something from the past, a Chicago Police Officers wife got raped by two white guys who pulled her into their van. She was raped and beat causing trauma both mentally and bodily. These rapist got one of the crooked lawyers who never loses a case in Cook County. For more then a year, the Policemen's wife was brought to court only to have it continued and drag it on and on. The one that did the actual rape, heard a knock at his door early on a Sunday morning. He answered the door and was shot in the face by a shotgun. A witness said, he saw two men running away wear Halloween Masks. At the next court date, the other offender who held the victim down pleaded guilty to the rape and was sentenced and I believe it was 18yrs. The lawyer hired armed body guards after receiving information he was on a hit list. A bitch lawyer like the one in the article can easily be intimidated, but no one is making an effort to do the right thing anymore.
