Deputies’ Suit Against Dart Goes to Trial
A federal lawsuit being heard in Judge Rebecca Pallmeyer‘s courtroom this week alleges that nearly two dozen deputies were punished because they didn’t support Sheriff Tom Dart’s 2006 election bid.
Cook County Sheriff Lt. Doug Zimny and nearly two dozen other deputies say they’ve been punished through “denials of promotions, discipline, being put back in the jail, being denied opportunity for advancement, having their lives destroyed.”
During the 2006 campaign, the deputies supported their boss, Richard Remus, in his campaign against Dart. Remus at the time was the deputies’ boss, as the chief of the new-defunct Special Operations Response Team.
