Unanimous jury verdicts in two joined cases after only a short deliberation.
Associates, Janet L. Keuper and Ashlee P. Clark, successfully defended three Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputies.
Two separate sets of plaintiffs brought suit against the County of Los Angeles for alleged civil rights violations, including excessive force and unreasonable search and seizure. State claims were also included in the lawsuit. The plaintiffs’ cases were joined for trial per judge’s order. Both sides presented their case meticulously and thoroughly, including witness and expert testimonies. But after only a short deliberation, the jury reached a unanimous verdict and found for defendants in both cases.
Double win for SNW!
