WV Civil Rights Lawyer

Police Misconduct, Civil Rights Law

Excessive Force Police Shooting Settled Before Trial

Literally, on the courthouse steps.  Settled for $200,000.00, paid by the Morgan County Commission.  Ulysses Everett v. Seth Place and the Morgan County Commission.  U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia.  Federal 1983 lawsuit for excessive force and unreasonable search and seizure.  It’s a tough call to choose to settle a case when you are prepared to try it before a jury, but in this particular case they had a damn good defense lawyer.
