Curtis Lovelace and his family Friday responded in federal court to a motion to partially dismiss a lawsuit filed by Lovelace against the city of Quincy and others.

After being found not guilty in March of killing his first wife, Lovelace filed an eleven-count suit in May against the City of Quincy, the Adams County State’s Attorney and Coroner and several members of the Quincy Police Department.

In July, a motion was filed to dismiss ten of the eleven counts.

In his response, Lovelace’s attorneys ask that the suit not be dismissed, citing a fourth amendment claim for the deprivation of his liberty that was caused by fabricating evidence.
