Minnesota lawyers are finding justice in excessive force cases. Cases of police brutality by use of a taser may be difficult to win, but as Minnesota attorneys prove justice can be achieved.
Minnesota attorneys received a settlement for $200,000 an excessive force case which resulted in no permanent physical injuries. The Plaintiff suffered emotional damages and anxiety.
In this case the plaintiff was tasered, after refusing to comply with requests from the police.
Although the key in many Florida taser cases is unusual damages, this Minnesota case shows that settlement can be achieved.
