CHICAGO — One of the Chicago police officers at the scene of a controversial shooting is removed from a federal civil rights lawsuit.

A federal judge on Thursday made the ruling on behalf of Officer Lou Toth in the Cedrick Chatman case.

The 17-year-old was shot and killed in 2013.

Chatman’s family filed the lawsuit.

The judge said Toth could not have known Officer Kevin Fry was about to shoot Chatman, or had any way to reasonably stop him from doing so.

The lawsuit remains against Fry.
