Suit by fired Race Baiting Negro Chicago Police Independent Police Review Authority (IPRA) investigator Lorenzo Davis who questioned police shootings is dismissed by judge! Sorry your GHETTO LOTTERY CHECK isn't coming......
The lawsuit by Lorenzo Davis alleged the Independent Police Review Authority and Scott Ando, its then-chief administrator, had violated his free speech rights with the dismissal.
In throwing out the lawsuit, U.S. District Judge Charles Kocoras held that Davis' refusal to change his findings was not entitled to First Amendment protection because he was acting as a government employee within the scope of his IPRA duties, not as a private citizen.
"Davis' attempt to create constitutional causes of action given the facts of the case strain the rights provided and protected by the Constitution," Kocoras wrote in the 17-page ruling.
Davis' lawyer, Torreya Hamilton, said Wednesday she was considering an appeal of the decision. She also said she would be filing a lawsuit in Cook County Circuit Court alleging violations of state law in Davis' firing.
"We are disappointed in the judge's ruling, particularly his finding that the issues of police accountability and IPRA's broken system for investigating police shootings are not matters of public concern," Hamilton said in an emailed statement. "We will still be pursuing Mr. Davis' claims in state court to the fullest extent of the law. This is not the end of Mr. Davis' fight to prove that his firing was illegal."
