Civil Rights Trial Victory

In a very challenging and highly charged climate given the publicity surrounding Ferguson and other high profile police brutality incidents, founding partner Jeff Vucinich still obtained a defense verdict in United States District Court in San Francisco on behalf of two police officers and a Peninsula municipality. Plaintiff claimed the officers used excessive force in apprehending and injuring him. Defendants presented evidence that appropriate police methods and tactics were implemented at the time of the arrest and that the officers acted appropriately. The jury unanimously reached a verdict in favor of the defendants, awarding no damages.
