We identified 1 publicly reported settlement that resulted in $250,000.00 in monetary compensation to victims.
A man was awarded $250,000 to settle a lawsuit where he claimed that he was assaulted and unlawfully arrested by a police officer.
Harold Cox filed suit, claiming that officer Michael Lamm body slammed him to the ground on September 7, 2018, and shattered his hip when trying to defuse an altercation between him and two women. Cox’s injuries required medical attention. Over a year and a half after the incident occurred, Cox was served an arrest warrant when Lamm falsely stated that Cox assaulted one of the women by hitting her with a homemade doorstop. The District Attorney’s Office eventually dismissed the charges.
