Antonio Romanucci shares insight on civil right cases with students at John Marshall Law School

Posted on: March 24th, 2016 by Chicago Police Misconduct Attorney

Antonio Romanucci, alumnus of John Marshall Law School, was honored to go back to his old stopping grounds this month to speak with students. Invited on behalf of the Pro Bono Clinic, he discussed his experience in trying civil rights cases, focusing on his recent work in the field of police misconduct, and was recognized and appreciated for his success in several recent civil cases.

Furthermore, Romanucci discussed some of the challenges of handling cases involving police – From gathering complicated evidence to properly establishing what the use of “excessive force” is in the court of law. The discussion was particularly relevant to the John Marshall Pro Bono students because of their active involvement in multiple cases representing prison inmates suing for civil rights violations.

A new low for the CPD – Officer sues family of the man he shot and killed

Posted on: March 16th, 2016 by Chicago Police Misconduct Attorney

At no other time in Chicago’s history have we seen anything of the sort of turmoil that has rattled the Chicago Police Department. Just when we thought it could not get any worse, it has. A recent counterclaim was filed last month by CPD officer Robert Rialmo for more than $10 million against the estate of the teen he shot and killed, Quintonio LeGrier. Having represented several high profile police misconduct cases in Chicago and across the nation, Romanucci & Blandin is astonished and appalled by this suit.

Where is the sympathy for the family? What is the police department thinking? Why did Robert Rialmo use such excessive force in the first place?

This suit is formally exposing the deep corruption, practice of cover-ups and the racial disparities that exist when it comes to policing the City of Chicago. As we know, the office of the Mayor, the Cook County State’s Attorney and the Independent Police Review Authority are all under intense scrutiny. It is our hope that justice is served for the family of Quintonio LeGrier and that this audacious counterclaim filed by officer Rialmo is dismissed.
