Holding Law Enforcement Accountable - Excessive Force & Misconduct
Law enforcement misconduct lawsuits are often difficult and complicated. Yet, they are also some of the most important cases, vindicating the rights of someone that has been wronged and leading to reform. For example, Founding Attorney Ray Dearie served as co-counsel in an excessive force case against the King County Sheriff’s Office that settled for $10,000,000 during the third week of trial. In that case, Ray’s client was wrongfully identified as suspect in a violent bar fight, then slammed into a concrete wall by a Sheriff’s Deputy, resulting in a catastrophic brain injury.
