- Chicago officials botched the scoring of the police lieutenant exam in January and have devised a retest plan that is unfair to the 660 test-takers, according to a lawsuit filed Wednesday.
- City officials are offering a retest on June 23 to anyone who took the January exam. But the sergeants are uncertain whether to sign up because city officials won't identify whose exam answers were lost, according to the suit filed in Cook County Circuit Court.
The sergeants also allege that the retest will feature the same videotaped scenarios and questions as the Jan. 6 exam, giving repeat test-takers an advantage.
"It's almost ludicrous, that you're going to give the same scenarios again," said John Pallohusky, president of the sergeants group. "It's like giving people the answers to the test beforehand. A lot of our people put so much time and effort in, it's just demoralizing."
