The feds agreed with the motions filed by Duffy on behalf of Degironemo and agreed that all references to organized crime will be struck out of the indictment. There will also be no references to organized crime , the Chicago Outfit, or the Cleveland Mafia or even suggestive nicknames used in front of the jury. The jury in the case will only be informed about a business man seeking a contract at McCormick Place said Duffy. Many around organized crime circles in Chicago find this to be an odd turn by the feds.
