Lovelace opposes more questioning ahead of civil suit

Lovelace opposes more questioning ahead of civil suit

6 months, 1 week ago by Scott Hardy

Claims he was questioned for over seven hours July 6

Lawyers for Curtis Lovelace have filed a motion opposing a defense motion to question him further ahead of next year's Federal civil suit.

In a Monday court filing, Lovelace's motion says that lawyers for both the City of Quincy and Adams County deposed Lovelace for over seven hours on July 6th. The motion says that Lovelace was asked about numerous topics, including if he kept any mementos of his first wife Cory, over a decade after she passed away. Lawyers also asked Lovelace how to say his last name, which elementary schools his kids attended and why, and if he ever considered playing professional football after college. Lovelace's motion says that both the City and County want to set aside at least another two hours to depose the former Adams County Assistant State's Attorney. A motion filed by both the City and County says that Lovelace's answers were quote "evasive and incomplete", which his motion disputes. The City and County have also asked for sanctions against Lovelace, which his lawyers say are inappropriate.

Lovelace, his wife Christine and their three children are suing the City, five members of the Quincy Police Department, Adams County, current State's Attorney Gary Farha and former Coroner Jim Keller. Lovelace claims evidence was withheld from his defense during both murder trials, and the QPD tried to frame him. Lovelace filed the suit, set to go to trial in October 2019, two months after he was acquitted by a Springfield jury.
