McKinney's reparations case has been in limbo for two years. The state claims board is expected to schedule a hearing on the matter in coming months. McKinney's lawyers will argue their client is "factually innocent" and deserving of compensation.
Of course, questions surrounding Rackauckas' stance won't help his cause, but McKinney shouldn't give up hope. He might once again temporarily win the DA's affections. An election is upcoming.
