Chicago: Walkup and Kaminski Obtain Motion to Dismiss with Prejudice for Claims of Race Discrimination Filed under Section 1983 against Commuter Transportation Agency

HPS attorneys April Walkup and Matt Kaminski scored a victory for the Firm’s Employment Law Group, for successfully defending their client, a commuter transportation agency, against race discrimination claims. The agency and several individuals were sued in their official and individual capacity under 42 USC Section 1983 for individual claims of race discrimination, as well as pattern and practice of race discrimination across the Agency’s Police Department. April and Matt challenged the Complaint on several grounds and achieved dismissal and entry of a Judgement in their client’s favor.
