A federal judge is demanding answers from Chicago Police Superintend Jody Weis about releasing the names of officers who have received more than five citizen complaints for excessive force. Weis has refused to turn over the list despite a court order.

On Wednesday morning, the judge said Weis is in contempt of court and has until 8:45 a.m. Monday to explain why he has not released the names.
