CHICAGO — A Chicago man is suing the city of Chicago and five police officers, identified as Jason Janopoulous, David Salgado, Rocco Pruger, Bryan Cox and Roberto Ramirez, citing alleged violation of civil rights.

Terrie Adams filed a complaint on Jan. 20 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois against the defendants, alleging that they detained him without probable cause.

According to the complaint, Adams alleges that in 2015, he sustained damages from being incarcerated for false accusations made against him. He alleges the officers knew that Adams had nothing to do with stealing a gun, but still pressed charges against him for unlawful possession of a weapon.

Adams requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment for compensatory damages, punitive damages, court costs and any further relief this court grants. He is represented by Mark F. Smolens, Richard R. Mottweiler and Nicole Barkowski of the firm of Mottweiler & Amolens LLP in Inverness.
