Two Chicago police officers named in connection with an alleged police beating are suing Superintendent Jody Weis. Lynn Meuris and Jason Vanna were among six officers and a sergeant placed on desk duty during a beating investigation.

The pair was later cleared of any wrongdoing, and they accuse Weis of libel for releasing their names in an internal memo.

The city's law department said it hasn't seen the suit yet, so it can't comment.
