CHICAGO — A jury can hear a bartender's claim that Chicago Police officers engaged in a "code of silence" to protect a cop who beat her in a videotaped attack seen around the world, a federal judge ruled Thursday.

In her ruling, U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve denied the city's attempt to dismiss bartender Karolina Obrycka's 2007 lawsuit against Chicago and former police Officer Anthony Abbate. But the judge did toss out one of the counts against the city.
