On October 4, 2017, five organizations serving Black and Latino communities in Chicago (the ACLU of Illinois, Communities United, Community Renewal Society, Next Steps, and ONE Northside), filed this lawsuit in the United States Northern District of Illinois. The plaintiffs sued the City of Chicago under 42 U.S.C. §1983, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and Illinois state law, seeking declaratory and injunctive relief. Based on findings from a Department of Justice investigation, the plaintiffs claimed that the Chicago Police Department engaged in a pattern and practice of unreasonable force, particularly against Black individuals, Latinos, and individuals with disabilities. Furthermore, the plaintiffs alleged that a lack of policy, guidance, and oversight of foot pursuits continued to encourage the unnecessary use of force. They argued that these practices violated the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution, the ADA, the Rehabilitation Act, and the Illinois Civil Rights Law.

This lawsuit resulted from a Department of Justice investigation that was opened in 2015 and that concluded with a published report in January 2017. The investigation's purpose was to determine if the Chicago Police Department was engaging in a pattern or practice of unlawful conduct and, if so, what systemic deficiencies or practices might be causing this pattern or practice. The investigation was jointly conducted by the Civil Rights Division, Special Litigation Section, and the United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois.

The investigation was opened in the aftermath of the release of a video showing a White Chicago officer fatally shooting a Black teenager, Laquan McDonald, that caused protests around the city. Relatedly, Chicago experienced a surge in shootings and homicides in the year following the killing. According to the report, ninety-six percent of CPD’s shooting victims and 97% of those tased were Black or Latino. People with disabilities were acutely affected. This included individuals with mental illness or intellectual or developmental disabilities, and also deaf individuals. Black and Latino people with disabilities face an overwhelming risk. The investigation concluded that CPD officers were inadequately trained and did not know how to de-escalate situations.

The case was assigned to Elaine Bucklo. On January 24, 2018, the defendants filed a motion to dismiss, claiming that the court lacked subject matter jurisdiction to hear the case, that the claims were moot because the defendants had changed their policies, and that the plaintiffs had failed to state a claim on which relief could be granted.

On March 20, 2018, the parties filed a joint motion to stay proceedings and discovery in light of ongoing negotiation of a consent decree in Illinois v. City of Chicago. After the proceedings were stayed, the parties filed two status reports with the court regarding progress in negotiation, one on September 12, 2018 and one on November 7, 2018. After the parties reached a settlement agreement in Illinois v. City of Chicago, they stipulated to dismissal in this case on May 17, 2019. The case was officially dismissed without prejudice on May 22, 2019, although the court retained jurisdiction to enforce the terms of the settlement agreement. The settlement detailed that if the parties had not moved to reinstate the action or enforce the agreement by August 21, 2019, the dismissal without prejudice would convert to a dismissal with prejudice.

There are no further entries in the docket as of May 26, 2020, so this case is presumed to be closed.
