Geraci Law founder, Peter Francis Geraci, recently settled a civil rights case v. Cook County over jail conditions. Mr. Geraci handled the matter pro bono on appointment by U.S. District Court Chief Judge Ruben Castillo. Members of the trial bar of the District Court receive rotating appointments to represent pro se litigants.
Jenner and Block also represented the same plaintiff in several other cases and contributed to obtaining a global settlement of the plaintiff’s claims for abusive conditions and medical treatment at the Cook County jail.
Geraci Law regularly contributes time and resources to representing indigent litigations. The firm contributes hundreds of unpaid hours a year in this regard.
