Lawyers for former Chicago mayor Richard Daley’s nephew, Richard Vanecko, are trying to get the wrongful death lawsuit against him dropped.

Koschman’s mother filed a lawsuit claiming that Vanecko, police officers, and prosecutors tampered with the case.  Vanecko’s lawyers filed an eleven page motion to get the suit dismissed.

They argue the statute of limitations expired because a wrongful death lawsuit needed to be filed two years within Koschman’s death.

But Koschman’s lawyers could argue that the statute of limitations has not passed because police officers allegedly conspired to cover up wrong doing more recently.

    This guy was convicted in a criminal court of law, sadly a slap on the wrist. This guy was able to do his time in MCHenry County jail instead of Cook county, vacation retreat compared to Cook county jail. Now he doesn’t want to have to be liable again for his actions. The scandal and preferiantial treatment not only continues but now he is trying to get out of paying even a dime. No way
