Emanuel talked about the possibility of compensating Michael Tillman and other victims of police torture, even as he defended his decision to provide a legal defense for former Mayor Richard M. Daley for his role in the case.
Daley has received notice to appear for a Sept. 8 deposition, now that U.S. District Judge Rebecca Pallmeyer has ruled that the former mayor can be sued as a defendant.
Sources close to Daley have argued that the former mayor’s deposition is “not a done deal” because attorneys representing the former mayor have filed a motion to reconsider.
They’re trying to block the deposition on grounds that Daley’s involvement in the case stems from his tenure as state’s attorneys and that prosecutors have “absolute immunity.”
