LeGrier Family Will Receive No Damages In Wrongful Death Lawsuit

The family of Quintonio LeGrier will not receive any of the $1.05 million in damages a jury awarded in a wrongful death trial. A Cook County judge overturned the jury’s decision to award the family of LeGrier, who was shot and killed by Chicago Police alongside Bettie Jones when they were responding to a mental health call LeGrier’s father made, after a jury answered “yes” to a special question about the use of deadly force. All twelve jurors answered "yes" when asked if Officer Robert Rialmo, who shot and killed LeGrier, "reasonably believe(d) that such force was necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or his partner," which wiped away all damages the family was supposed to receive.
