CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
19 Action News Reporter Ed Gallek has learned, Cleveland City Officials have hired an outside law firm to defend itself in a lawsuit over a 2012 police chase and shooting.
Officers fired 137 shots and killed two people, and a federal wrongful death lawsuit has been filed on behalf of the families.
This means one law firm will be defending the city and the officers involved in the chase and shooting even though the city has already punished dozens of officers involved.
The city has hired Stephen Funk of Roetzel and Andress.

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
