Plaintiff Voluntarily Dismisses Case on Eve of Trial
On the eve of trial, a Plaintiff voluntarily dismissed with prejudice all claims he had asserted against a law enforcement officer in the Circuit Court of Harrison County, WV. The Complaint filed in this matter alleged that the officer had used excessive force in subduing and arresting the Plaintiff for obstruction of justice and had further deprived him of his constitutional right of lawful assembly. No offers of settlement were extended on behalf of the law enforcement officer and when faced with impending trial, the Plaintiff decided to voluntarily dismiss his case.
The individual law enforcement officer was represented by Flaherty attorneys Timothy L. Mayo and Phillip Estep.
