A federal judge has dismissed five of seven claims in a federal lawsuit filed againt the City of Evanston by a man acquitted in a murder case.

Judge Amy J. St. Eve ruled that John A. Bamberg Jr. had waited too long to file claims that officers falsely arrested him for the Sept. 30, 2010, murder of 23-year-old Marcus Davis and conspired to deprive him of constitutional rights.

St. Eve said the statute of limitations requires that those claims be filed within two years, but Bamberg had waited more than three years, until Oct. 24, 2013, to file his suit.
