Circuit Judge Vincent Lopinot continued a case management conference in a man's dog attack suit until Jan. 13, 2014, at 9 a.m. in order to provide the plaintiff enough time to obtain service on the defendants.
The case management conference was originally scheduled for Oct. 28 before it was continued.
According to the complaint filed May 13, Reginald King claims he was riding his bicycle from a gas station to his home when Cahokia police officer Elijah Moyers allegedly stopped King and told him to walk his bicycle home.
King claims he protested. As things escalated, Officer Moyers handcuffed him and informed him that he was under arrest.
“After handcuffing plaintiff, defendant Moyers remotely opened the door to his police vehicle and purposely unleashed his K-9 police dog to attack, assault and hurt plaintiff,” the suit states.
The City of Cahokia is also named a defendant.
King seeks a judgment of more than $100,000.
John M. Smith of Callis, Papa, Hale & Szewczyk in Granite City represents King.
An attorney for the defendants has not yet been identified.
