Daley court filing denies connection to police torture cases involving Jon Burge


Former Mayor Richard Daley today denied allegations that he was part of a broader torture conspiracy involving disgraced former Chicago police Cmdr. Jon Burge.

Daley’s written response was filed in federal court in answer to a 2010 lawsuit by Michael Tillman, who has alleged that he was beaten, burned, smothered and threatened with death in 1986 by Chicago detectives working under Burge to coerce him to confess to the rape and murder of a South Side woman.

Daley was sued in the Tillman lawsuit for both his tenure as mayor as well as Cook County state’s attorney, a post he held from 1981 to 1989.
