Bumgarner excessive force lawsuit in the news

Today the Charleston Gazette-Mail published an article about the retired West Virginia state trooper we represent in a federal police brutality lawsuit.

Retired trooper John E. Bumgarner filed a lawsuit against the town of Alderson last July in which he accuses three of its officers of excessive force. Monroe County lawyer John Bryan, who represents Bumgarner, told the Gazette-Mail that he’s been contacted by agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, in Charleston, and officials with the Department of Justice, in Washington.

“They have requested the video footage and documents, which we are providing,” Bryan said Wednesday.
