The author of the first government report to document a pattern of torture under former Chicago police Cmdr. Jon Burge is headed to court on Tuesday to defend the credibility of his investigation and findings. Michael Goldston’s report was ruled inadmissible last month by Cook County Associate Judge Neera Walsh. Her ruling excludes the report from evidence in a torture claim brought by James Gibson, who is trying to get his 25-year-old murder conviction overturned. https://www.wbez.org/shows/wbez-news/investigator-headed-to-court-to-defend-key-report-on-burge-torture/82f3f53a-a8d1-435d-8811-d031106121d3
