Florida Taser Policy Change - Section 1983 Civil Rights

Taser Civil Rights Lawsuit AttorneyFlorida Civil Rights Attorney W.F. ''Casey'' Ebsary has obtained an amazing internal memo from a local law enforcement agency. No longer will cops roll up on bicycles and Taser riders. You can review this 12 page policy memo by clicking here. Sad it takes a 12 page memo to explain the obvious. The cover letter notes that "shooting a Taser at a moving vehicle is not specifically prohibited . . . ." then continues in a dozen pages to explain why it is not a good idea to shock someone while they are driving a vehicle.

Florida Attorney Excessive Force in Effecting Arrest

Tampa Civil Rights AttorneyCivil rights lawyer, Attorney W.F. ''Casey'' Ebsary reports that a jury could find plaintiff's constitutional right to be free from excessive force during arrest were violated during a misdemeanor arrest. The Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta held that after a suspect was handcuffed and cooperating with deputy, a deputy who forcefully dragged the suspect outside, and proceeded to repeatedly “slam” his body into a concrete structure, and who caused him extreme pain, put the suspect in fear for his life, and inflicted serious injuries could be held accountable under section 1983 in federal court. Not surprisingly, the court found it should have been clear to deputy that slamming a handcuffed and cooperating suspect against corner of a concrete wall with sufficient force to break arrestee's ribs and cause a leaking aneurysm was unlawful. The District court erred in granting summary judgment, and throwing out the suspect's case. The deputy was not entitled to qualified immunity.
