The Weekend Desk Report

"The judge overseeing the murder case against Chicago police Officer Jason Van Dyke grilled a city lawyer Thursday over whether her request to keep some 240,000 e-mails from public view violated Mayor Rahm Emanuel's pledge to be more transparent," the Tribune reports.

"The sharply worded questions from Judge Vincent Gaughan led Lisette Mojica, an assistant corporation counsel, to finally admit that as far as she knew, Emanuel hadn't been consulted.

"As is his practice, Gaughan then went into his chambers for closed-door discussions with lawyers in the hot-button case that lasted nearly 50 minutes.

"After returning to court, Gaughan said a tentative arrangement had been reached over the disputed e-mails, but he said he was not going to reveal the details because it had not been finalized."

"For the second time in a week, the Chicago Tribune has sued the Chicago Police Department, this time saying the department has failed to produce public records regarding complaints against officers and disciplinary actions taken in response," the paper also reports.

"In a lawsuit filed on Friday, the Tribune said its reporters have filed three Freedom of Information Act requests that the department has failed to act upon. The first was filed on June 27 by Tribune reporter Jodi S. Cohen as part of an investigation into officer discipline at the department, according to the lawsuit."

Please assign this case to Judge Gaughan!

"A Cook County judge on Friday ordered the city and Mayor Rahm Emanuel to produce an index of certain e-mails and text messages that the mayor sent and received on personal devices, as the Chicago Tribune and the city continue to battle over the mayor's electronic communications," the paper also reports.

"Judge Kathleen Pantle made the ruling in the Tribune's September 2015 lawsuit, which alleged that Emanuel had violated state open records laws by refusing to release communications about city business that he had conducted through e-mails and texts on personal devices."

I was going to discuss a Sun-Times story here, but it's wreaking too much havoc with my browser. How many dollars do they leave on the table by having such a shitty website?

"Two Chicago police officers have resigned in the face of their firing over the off-duty beating of a restaurant patron on the Northwest Side more than a decade ago," the Tribune reports.

That lead is a little confusing; they weren't fired more than a decade ago, they beat up a dude at a Taco Burrito King more than a decade ago, in 2006. They were fired in 2011, because that's how long it can take to fire cops, but stayed on the force until now because, well, that's how hard it is to fire cops.

Especially when there's no video.

Oh.
