Seventh Circuit Supports Barnes Law Civil Rights Appeal

On Thursday January 5th 2017, noted Civil Rights attorney Robert Barnes lead oral argument in front of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.  Barnes argued for the plaintiff, the estate of Mr. James Perry, a prisoner who died while in the custody of the government. The Court was receptive to Mr. Barnes argument and allowed him to provide almost uninterrupted narrative. The City and County defendants argument did not fare as well as the 7th Circuit interrupted, questioned, and openly scorned the defendants' positions.   In the coming weeks the court will rule whether the case should be returned to the district court and set for trial.
