A federal jury today found in favor of a female bartender who was beaten by an off-duty Chicago police officer in a notorious 2007 attack captured on security cameras.
Jurors held both the city and Abbate responsible. The jury awarded the bartender, Karolina Obrycka, $850,000 in compensatory damages, which her attorneys will collect from the city, they said after the verdict.
Obrycka’s lawyers contended a code of silence protected former Chicago cop Anthony Abbate from punishment until the damning videotape was made public.
