Hurrell Cantrall LLP’s Clients Dismissed from Governmental Liability ActionOctober 2nd, 2009
In this matter, four plaintiffs who had been charged with assault on a peace officer claimed that they were falsely arrested and subjected to excessive force. The plaintiffs sued those officers as well as the public entity that employed them. We filed a motion to dismiss all of the individual defendants based on various procedural and substantive grounds, which the Court granted without leave to amend, leaving only the public entity as a defendant in the action. Through further negotiations between our office and the plaintiffs’ counsel, the plaintiffs agreed to dismiss all of their claims against the public entity. The Court therefore ordered the dismissal of the case, terminating the action.
