CORRECTIONS OFFICER BRUTALITY – MISCONDUCT SETTLEMENT = $500,000
Our client was an inmate at Riker’s Island who was assaulted by New York City Corrections Officers. He was beaten by the officers resulting in a skull fracture and multiple facial abrasions and contusions. The City did not want to settle the case because of our client’s criminal record.
We retained an expert in police procedures and the City settled case on the eve of trial for $500,000.
