CHICAGO -- A federal judge announced today he will not release surveillance video of another controversial police shooting.

17-year old Cedrick Chatman was shot to death by a Chicago police officer in January of 2013.

The judge said the video is part of the family's ongoing civil rights lawsuit against the city and won't be released at this time.

The family's attorney says in light of Mayor Emanuel's City Council speech today which pledged a new era of transparency - the city should release the video.

The next court hearing in the case is set for January 14.
