Civil Rights attorney Antonio Romanucci of Romanucci & Blandin released a statement in response to the 7th Circuit Court decision to overturn the Michael LaPorta case

February 23, 2021

"Today's decision by the 7th Circuit to overturn the LaPorta case is intensely concerning, not only as it relates to delivering much needed justice for Michael LaPorta and his life-changing traumatic brain injuries, but also for the City of Chicago and the precedent this case sets in terms of accountability for police officers and the culture of impunity at CPD. We vigorously commit to continuing this fight for Mr. LaPorta in the weeks and months to come. We are weighing all of our available legal options at this time to ensure justice is restored and that Mikey can live somewhat of a normal life. Those options include a petition to the entire panel, en banc, or a petition for certiorari to the United States Supreme Court."
