After seven years of litigation, on July 29, 2014, the City of Chicago provided Jamie Kalven, founder and principal staff member of the Invisible Institute, with a batch of documents on police misconduct that took place between 2001 and 2008.

According to Kalven, the list of misconduct reports involved police officers assigned to “public housing south” and those who participated in any of the Chicago Police Department’s “early intervention” programs. The documents were produced by the city as a result of “Bond v. Utreras” and other lawsuits.

The documents from the recently settled freedom of information case, Kalven v. Chicago, can be found on the Invisible Institute website where, according to Kalven, they  “are now universally available” to the public.
