CHICAGO – The Chicago Police Department is alleged to have failed to respond to an organization's request for public records.
Lucy Parsons Labs filed a complaint on Oct. 3 in Cook County Circuit Court against Chicago Police Department, citing the Illinois Freedom of Information Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges on April 18, Parsons requested from the defendant any and all communications between it and Jam Productions. The suit states the city denied the request on April 27, and on the same day the plaintiff narrowed its request. Parsons alleges as of the filing date, the defendant has not produced any records.
The plaintiff alleges the Chicago Police Department willfully and intentionally violated the FOIA law by refusing to produce the requested records.
The plaintiff seeks to expedite this case in every way; order the defendant to produce the requested records; enjoin defendant from withholding non-exempt public records under FOIA and order CPD to pay civil penalties. She is represented by Matthew Topic and Joshua Burday of Loevy & Loevy in Chicago.
