Family of Hillsdale County man fatally shot by deputy seeks state probe.
More than two million people might be eligible to join a class-action lawsuit over the Chicago Police Department’s stop-and-frisk practices.
That’s according to attorneys suing CPD and the city, a lawsuit that was recently certified as a class action by a federal judge. The plaintiffs argue CPD disproportionately target young and middle-aged Black and Latino men for street stops in violation of their constitutional rights.
Attorney Antonio Romanucci of the firm Romanucci and Blandin, which first filed the lawsuit in 2015, described the CPD’s stop-and-frisk practices as “a systemic cultural cancer.”
