Chicago attorneys Dan Gallagher,Terrence Guolee and Dominick Lanzito recently obtained summary judgment in two cases alleging malicious prosecution, racial and sexual harassment and violation of two Cook County Jail correctional officers’ First Amendment rights by the Cook County Sheriff and various Jail administrators.

In the cases, two male officers alleged that they, in essence, were framed by the defendants in retaliation for union activities at the Jail and in a move to remove male officers from the women’s division of the Jail. Investigation revealed, however, that the officers’ had been alleged to have had sexual relations with female detainees and that they were properly treated in administrative actions seeking their termination from the Sheriff’s office, despite their respective acquittals in criminal trials.
