Roth Fioretti wins full request in defense of the City and Harvey and the Harvey Police Department.
Attorneys Mark Roth and Kenneth Hurst went up against a plaintiff who was injured during a shootout and arrest. Plaintiff alleges a Harvey Police officer used excessive and unnecessary force that led to his injuries. Plaintiff has previously been arrested for armed robbery and was harassing and threatening tow-truck drivers in the area. Plaintiff was injured in a sting operation conducted by the Harvey Police Department.
A jury of twelve was selected and found the Harvey Police officer, and the City of Harvey itself, was acting justifiably based on the previous robberies and the Plaintiff’s criminal background.
Congratulations to the City of Harvey and the Harvey Police Department for all their hard work.
