The firm represented four police officers on appeal. These officers spoke out on matters involving police misconduct, and suffered retaliation from City officials as a result.
The officers sued certain City officials in addition to the City itself, and the trial court agreed that the officials could properly be sued as individuals for violating the officers’ constitutional rights. The City officials appealed that ruling.
The Court of Appeals upheld the district court’s decision and remanded the case for a jury trial. The case settled before it was tried.
