Seventh Circuit Stays Production Of Police Documents

On Monday, July 16, 2007, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals stayed a court order that would have required the City of Chicago to make public certain documents listing the names of Chicago police officers who have received more than 10 complaints against them between 2001 and 2006. That order had been issued by district court judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow in a lawsuit brought by Diane Bond. The City appealed Judge Lefkow's ruling and argued, among other things, that the documents being sought were not used in the Bond litigation and that dissemination of the documents would violate the police officers' privacy.
