Pride parade beating

CHICAGO — A Chicago liquor store owner won’t be getting a new trial in Illinois federal court on damages or remittitur after jurors found him liable for starting a fight with Chicago Pride Parade attendees in 2018. The man, who harassed a group of friends and slammed them with slurs before punching a woman twice and dragging her by her braids, remains liable for more than $173,000 in damages. The damages are not excessive, the court ruled.
