Court Says Bogus Parking Ticket Case Can Move Forward
Wednesday was an up day for Mark Geinosky according to the Chicago Tribune.
That’s when the U.S. Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court decision that threw out Geinosky’s lawsuit against the City of Chicago and several Chicago police officers for violating his rights when he was issued many, many bogus parking tickets several years ago.
The Chicago Police Department, after much prodding and attention from the Chicago Tribune’s Jon Yates, is moving to fire four of the officers with hearings scheduled for two at the end of April.
Here’s Yates’ full story, “Court says lawsuit alleging bogus parking tickets can proceed.”
Also, here’s the court’s full opinion on the case.
