Former Chicago Police officer Slawomir Plewa was fired in 2013 and is trying to get his job back. A Cook County judge on Thursday ruled that he will get another hearing before the Chicago Police Board, but the judge also put no restrictions on how the board could rule, so members could just vote to fire Plewa again. | Photo provided
