    Isn’t the well known police misconduct/civil rights/FOIA litigation law firm name spelled Loevy and Loevy?

    As an activist for policing reform, I have gotten intake assistance from that firm on how to use the Freedom of Information Act to obtain public records from police agencies at no cost (and successfully obtained some records). Please do that wonderful law firm a favor and spell the name correctly; it’s Loevy and Loevy.

    I do believe they also represented a past complainant who had allegedly been electro-shocked by members of the Village of LaGrange Park Police Department. That police department has a very colorful history, what with 2 lawsuits that made it into the news and 2 former detectives indicted for extortion in the past. Just look online for Prospero David Lassi v. Village of LaGrange Park. Supposedly, the Village took away their tasers after this lawsuit settled, so now they just have lethal weapons! Gosh, that’s such a relief (pardon the snark).

    So yes, get the name right. It’s spelled Loevy and Loevy, not Lovey and Lovey.
