Pugnacious Public Defender Sued by His Prosecutor Prey

Alliteration and lawyer brawling.  What a way to kick off a Thursday!  The Chicago Tribune has run a short piece about a lawsuit coming in the aftermath of a courthouse scuffle between a public defender and a prosecutor in Chi-town last year

A fight last year between a Cook County prosecutor and a public defender has turned into a legal battle.

Michael McCormick, who was working as a Cook County assistant state’s attorney at the time, alleges in a lawsuit that Henry Hams, who was working as a public defender, followed him out of a courtroom in June 2010, threatened him and then jumped on his back and neck — twisting his neck and causing him to fall to the ground.
