Corp Counsel Steps in Shit

  • A federal judge Monday found a lawyer for the city intentionally misled the court when he concealed a key recording of a police radio dispatch to attorneys for the family of a man shot to death by Chicago cops in 2011.

    Hours later, the veteran city attorney, Jordan Marsh, resigned, city officials said.
The judge was none too kind in his criticism:
  • Marsh, who handled civil rights cases for the city, knew about the recording before the lawsuit went to trial in March 2015, Chang said in a 72-page opinion.

    “The court has no choice but to conclude, based on the record evidence, that Marsh intentionally withheld this information from the court,” the judge wrote.

    Another city attorney, Thomas Aumann, “failed to make a reasonable inquiry, as required by the discovery rules, to search for the recording,” Chang added.

    Aumann resigned on Aug. 31, city officials say.
No word if their law licenses are in jeopardy, but any firm hiring them after this would be foolish in the extreme - not knowing the rules of discovery? intentionally withholding evidence from a court?

How many other cases just got re-opened?

Jordan was one of the best attorneys Corp Counsel had. No way he did this on his own if in fact it happened maliciously. He was definitely one of the good guys in that office with the best interests of police always in mind. I'll reserve my judgement until the real story emerges.

I would not worry about their careers. So the judge is pissed, he will get over it and forget everything. As long as the two lawyers are good democrats and progressives they still have a bright future, just maybe not in Cook Co.

Talk about stepping in shit, Elgin has a problem with its Police Explorer Post. One of its leaders is "allegedly" guilty of stealing funds.

Another black eye - found out when the department started to look into its Explorer Post when the "Hero" in Fox Lake was outed.

For what he allegedly stole ($6,000?) was it worth losing the job and the benefits? (which will happen if found guilty)

Citizen, not CPD here.
I encountered Jordan Marsh a number of years ago when he was very Junior and doing more menial legal work for the City. Thought he was slime back then so this wasn't a shock to me.
He just obeys his masters----he is not working on his own. I doubt that many of those attorneys have a choice and are told exactly what to argue. Many times, I can imagine that Aldermen are in the middle. My guess is that he did as he was told so he will have a new gig by the end of the week, making far more money at a private firm.

Can you imagine if the lawyers that continuously sue the City were held to the sam e standards? No suborning perjury, following the rules of discovery and how about just being honest when you have a guilty client and refusing to help their client steal from the taxpayers?

The court dockets would be clear, the taxpayers would have nothing to worry about....but there is no payday in being honest counselor, is there?

Hate a lawyer, every last one of them. The 99% dishonest ones make the one per cent honest ones look bad.

All BS. Aumun "resigned" because he moved, not having anything to do with this case. Jordan is a good guy, easy on the Monday morning QB SCC. We don't like it when it's done to us, why are we doing it so liberally when it comes to those that defend us?! Jordan wasn't in physical possession of the tapes, which would have only helped his case. Rather, they popped up last minute and I think the judge said while on recess. There is a lot to the case. Simple mistake, yes? Conspiring to hold back evidence, absolutely not. This is just an extension of headhunting in Chicago.

For all you "workers" and "real police," with this in mind, if you still can't read the writing on the wall, let me connect the dots for you: if you do your job, you are bound to run across dude inc. (sorry, had to steal that) and will have to defend yourself. God forbid you choose your life over his, prepare to get fucked. The people that are there to defend us are going to be gone. Well, the ones that actually care. We will be left with demoralized b-string attorneys that can care less about you. This is an awful climate. I've met some citizens that are very supportive lately but it still feels like we're being crucified in the media and, well, within certain areas in Chicago that MF in one breath and beg for your help with the next.

Maybe. Maybe that's true. Or, maybe the City was acting in its own best interests and the cops were merely a beneficiary of that action since the City's interests and the cops interests were aligned on that issue. There's a difference.

****************************************

"On the horns of a dilemma"

Marsh had 2 choices:

1. Follow the Rules of Professional Conduct and make a timely disclosure. In so doing, he would have likely incurred the wrath of the mayor, the City Council, and a lot of CPD. People who he has to see and deal with most every day. Not good.

2. Ignore the Rules of Professional Conduct and hope no one finds out. In so doing, he risks his law license and his career. Not good either.

Now the shit has hit the fan.

So did he do it because he was one of these "win at all costs" types?

Or was he just afraid of the political fallout?

Can't tell ya. Never met the guy. I wasn't there.

Regardless, the Rules of Professional Conduct are there for a reason. If a lawyer can not be counted on to follow the Rules, he should be held accountable.

Call the next case. Not a cop.

Listen people, States attorneys and Corp. counsel are not your friends. When you go to a police board hearing it's the corp. counsel that prosecutes you. They have no shame, no empathy, and commit prosecutorial misconduct all the time. When you go to a grievance hearing it's the corp. counsel that fights you tooth and nail and represents the city/department. They are corrupt, arrogant, and dangerous. They are never, and I mean never to be trusted, then again what do I know with over 25 yrs with what used to be a police department.

Marsh is a good guy who was well prepared for a civil rights trial that I got caught up in a few years ago.

We won the case and I felt fortunate to have him working on our behalf. Hope he lands on his feet.

What most in CPD do not realize is that those attorneys make less than half their market value because they are committed to their jobs and to their clients. They are not corrupt. They would never intentionally withheld evidence because doing so has no upside for them even where a case has bad facts. These guys have no juice. Juice doesn't make you an ACC. It is disappointing to read on this blog that some would want the very attorneys who fight for them to have their law licenses revoked.

Big interview with Anita A in Chicago mag.

Interesting Q&As:

Q. I sense watching the protests—Black Friday, Christmas—that the police are behaving very gingerly. It’s almost like there’s a cloud of fear that making an arrest could trigger violence. Do you agree?

A. I don’t want to say that that’s what’s happening. I can imagine officers being maybe more apprehensive. I just think it’s a tough time to be a police officer.

Q. Do you have an opinion on Rahm’s firing of [police superintendent Garry] McCarthy?

A. The superintendent and I didn’t always agree on things. I think it’s the nature of our positions.

Q. Do you mean you could have some hot discussions with him or arguments?

A. Again, I don’t know why the mayor chose to do what he did. It’s his prerogative.
It’s his choice. It’s certainly not mine. I’ll always maintain a good professional working relationship with whoever the superintendent is.

Q. Do you have any feeling about who should have that job? Is it something that you might talk to the mayor about?

A. I probably won’t talk to the mayor about it. It’s not my position to tell him who the superintendent is going to be.

Q. Does it have to be an African American?

A. I think it should be who he has the most confidence in and who’s going to be the best person for the job. I don’t know.

Thank you. Sometimes the voice of reason gets lost in all the mass hysteria.

Corp Counsel says they will take a look at the 30 pending cases Marsh was involved in and not the cases already settled/ closed.

Jordan Marsh was a great attorney. Worked very hard for us (Police) as his clients. I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt as the media is not known for accurate reporting and there is truly always more to the story. How quick everyone is to judge. He was on our side and not suing police, but rather working hard to keep us from damages and losses.

There is more to this story I don't see if there was some discovery about with holding evidence just right before trial started then why did the trial continue, the JUDGE along with prosecuting lawyers for bad guys could have intervened and the case would've been a mistrial and got another date to retry the case without any findings...theres more to this case like every other case the media carefully syncs into their stories for their benefit. And these 2 lawyers for the city are 2 of the most honest guys you'll meet with the firm. Good luck to you guys!

Don't really blame you coppers for wanting to see lawyers,
media people and politicians to join you in being burned
at the stake.

Truth be told, it's a fire lit by your mayor.
He should be afraid some of his young whiz-kid
aides getting sucked into the updraft and getting burned
to a crisp.

It'll be funny when the wrong people start getting hurt
An spilling the beans in Rahm's doings.

If you read the judge's memorandum and order, you'll see why those two fine attorneys, officers, and supervisors have some 'splainin' to do...can you say "Perjury" and "Official Misconduct"??

--------

I have read it. This judge, appointed by Obama at the ripe age of 38/39 with nothing too exceptional in his background, hails from the safety of Northbrook, a nice quiet suburb, passes judgement. The attorneys, by the judge's own opinion, didn't understand fully how the zones work. This doesn't take into account that the one partner could have switched zones after hearing a chase on zone 8 and heard another call of shots fired and associated the two thusly, as specifically mentioned by the judge. Judge Chang himself also submits a personal opinion, which is really a ruling since he is attempting to implicate the defendants (officers) by saying they escalated the situation by exiting their vehicles and approaching aggressively and with their guns drawn. He then says the passenger, Coyle, "falls out of the vehicle," causing an "injury" to officer S's partner's hand. The driver, pine, accelerates the vehicle after crashing into a pole attempting to flee. The judge is saying that the officers aggressiveness caused pine to flee, nearly striking the officers. So then, the judge clearly is not happy the defendants won the case and is retaliating, his own "opinion" is rife with his displeasure. Who "falls" out of a vehicle? Another cover-up by the judge.

Jordan was NOT in possession of said evidence. Reasonable efforts were made to obtain evidence (911 calls) but he was told evidence was eventually recovered and in the possession of a CPD SGT. Jordan learned of this via a telephone call while on a recess for the case. How does he know this evidence is actually 100% in relation to the case prior to listening? He doesn't! He tells the court and is asked when he learned of this. He replies "a couple days ago." Jordan himself volunteering corrected himself, without request, to the court in the beginning of one of the days, saying 'I reviewed my records and I must tell you I believe it wasn't a couple days ago but seven." He had an honest mental recollection and corrected himself to the best of his deliberated recollection. This has been blown up into a shitstorm of nonsense.

These judges are political appointees. The above are but a few examples that, to me, represent a totally hostile nature against law enforcement and anyone attempting to defend them. The message sent being, "do not respect laws or law enforcement, unless you are in my court, in which case, behave. However, feel free to engage in any reckless conduct, even when confronted by LEOs. At the end of the day, I was appointed by Obama and I got your back."

Keep slamming Corporation Counsel, it's not like they have your back or anything, right? Keep placing your confidence in lower-than-sewage defense attorneys. Keep believing in a court system where judges act above the law, thinking themselves worthy of near divine rule and who rule based in line with the likings of their political masters.

Stay fetal. We are caught in a rapidly devolving society more akin to the twilight zone

federal judges tend to be very circumspect and quite lenient with attorneys. if the judge is mad enough about what this guy did to censure him in some way, he probably earned it.

judges do not like being lied to, and they like it even less when they are misled about something by a quibbling attorney. they have to be able to trust that when an attorney makes statements regarding something like this that it is 100% true, and not some quibbling to try and make their case look better than it is.

Today I received a letter from the ARDC that an inquiry into Jordan Marsh's misconduct has been opened under file #2015-IN-042227, after filing a public interest complaint.

Today the ARDC advised the Marsh investigation "...has been referred to a panel of the Inquiry Board of the Commission. It is the duty of the panel to determine whether there is sufficient evidence for the filing of a complaint or petition with the Hearing Board".

Wonder who will complain about the "excessive" due process given lawyers...
