Top Cop Weis Caves, Hands Over Police List, After Contempt Citing

Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis has turned over a list of officers who have repeated complaints filed against them - two days after a judge held him in contempt for failing to do so.

Weis (WEES) said Friday he still disagrees with U.S. District Judge Robert Gettleman's order to produce the list. But he says he thinks it was time to do what the judge ordered.

Earlier, Gettleman and Magistrate Judge Maria Valdez ordered Weis to turn over the names in a lawsuit filed by a Chicago woman who claims an off-duty officer beat her children up in 2007.

Weis had argued that releasing the list would hurt morale in the department as well as brand some officers as "repeaters."
