Suit against Bianchi tossed
WOODSTOCK – A federal judge dismissed a former assistant state’s attorney’s lawsuit claiming he was fired for testifying against McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi.
Kirk Chrzanowski filed the civil lawsuit in January, seeking more than $50,000 in damages. He also accused Bianchi of giving preferential treatment to employees who are political allies.
In his written ruling, U.S. Federal Judge Philip G. Reinhard said Bianchi and Criminal Division Chief Michael Combs, who also was named in the lawsuit, were protected against civil damages as long as their actions were not a violation of constitutional rights.
