For over 10 years, attorneys from People’s Law Office, along with other members of the National Lawyers Guild have litigated Vodak v. City of Chicago. The case is a class action civil rights lawsuit on behalf of over 800 individuals who were falsely detained or arrested by Chicago police officers on March 20, 2003 at a demonstration protesting the War in Iraq. Last year, we successfully achieved a settlement of $6.2 Million on behalf of the class. Checks were mailed out earlier this year and will expire on April 8, 2013.

If you received a check for your share of the settlement proceeds YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY CASH THE CHECK. We have been notified that 13 checks have not yet been cashed and will be void as of April 8th which is next Monday. If you or someone you know has not cashed your check please do so now.
