Ronald Magee sued a half-dozen Chicago police officers in 2009, claiming, among other things, the officers had falsely arrested him a year earlier.
Magee’s federal lawsuit ended with a mistrial, and it was eventually dismissed in 2011. On Tuesday, two of the officers named in Magee’s suit have sued Magee and a woman who testified at the trial.
Officers Arthur Davis and Pablo Mariano arrested Magee in 2008, months after they found drugs and weapons in a house where they believed Magee lived with a woman named Christina Atterbury. The charges against Magee were later dismissed, and he sued Davis, Mariano, four other officers and the city in federal court, claiming false arrest, unlawful detention, malicious prosecution, conspiracy and other counts.
