Friday, March 19, 2010 — A south suburban attorney was arrested Thursday at the Markham courthouse after he was seen assaulting a woman who is tied to a case he is handling, Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart announced Friday.

Dan FloreyDan Florey, 48, of Palos Heights, is charged with battery, a misdemeanor. The incident happened around 11:30 a.m. Thursday outside courtroom 202, a domestic relations courtroom.

Florey was representing the defendant in a hearing for an order of protection. During a break in the courtroom, Florey asked the petitioner to step in the hallway with him. That woman’s mother followed and interrupted questions Florey began asking the petitioner. Since the conversation became combative, the petitioner’s mother suggested they return to the court. As she turned to head in, Foley called them “ludicrous” and “juvenile.” The mother turned around and Foley was seen by others raising his arms and using his chest and torso to push her. She stumbled into the wall and told him “you don’t touch me.”

A nearby court deputy intervened and separated the group. When that deputy attempted to ask him about the incident, he replied with “this is (expletive).” He was then arrested.

Foley posted 10 percent of his $1,000 bond there. His next court date is set for April 27.
