Lovelace civil trial to start September 6

Lovelace civil trial to start September 6

2 weeks, 6 days ago by Scott Hardy

Trial expected to last 2-3 weeks

The Federal lawsuit filed by Curtis Lovelace and his family against the City of Quincy, Police Chief Rob Copley, several current and former officers, Adams County, State's Attorney Gary Farha and former Adams County Coroner Jim Keller, will go to trial in September.

At a hearing Friday in U.S. District Court in Springfield, records show that jury selection in case will start September 6th. The trial is expected to last two to three weeks. The city, Chief Copley and three other officers, the County, Farha and Keller have all been sued by Lovelace, his wife and their three sons. The former Quincy Public Schools Board President claims evidence was withheld from his defense during both his 2016 and 2017 murder trials, and that the QPD tried to frame him.

Lovelace filed the suit two months after he was acquitted by a Sangamon County jury at his re-trial in Springfield. He's not specified what damages he's asking for.
