Chicago Justice


Nurse Lisa Hofstra has settled a lawsuit against the city of Chicago and police officer Marcelo Rodriguez for $78,000. Rodriguez got angry with Hofstra and handcuffed her and placed her in the backseat of a squad car for 45 minutes after she refused to draw blood from a suspected drunk driver. Hofstra tried to explain to Rodriguez that she could not draw blood from the woman until she was admitted as a patient, but that was something he apparently didn't want to hear.
