- A reputed gang leader famous for receiving a $25 million wrongful murder conviction settlement now is being sued by the man he was charged with shooting in Chicago's Albany Park neighborhood in August.
Earl R. Casteel, 33, filed the lawsuit against Thaddeus Jimenez on Monday, according to court documents.
The suit alleges that Jimenez shot Casteel in both legs in the 3500 block of West Belle Plaine Avenue on Aug. 17. Police previously said that Jimenez and another man, Jose Roman, confronted the victim, who was standing outside his car. Jimenez, a reputed leader of the Simon City Royals, apparently had tried to persuade the victim to rejoin his gang after several years of inactivity. When the man refused, Jimenez then pointed a gun at the victim's head and chest before firing into his legs, police said.
Of course, the plaintiff has his own extensive record, but it's nice to see these jagoffs eating their own. Too bad this goof couldn't get Loevy to represent him.
