GMR Settles Civil Rights Case for $175,000

GMR Partner Matthew Moroney represented a plaintiff who alleged a correctional officer assaulted him.  The plaintiff had a seizure disorder and was under medical observation.   During an episode, he could not follow the directions of the correctional officers properly, which led to the excessive force.  He sustained cuts and bruises to his face.  The parties agreed to mediation before discovery started and reached an amicable settlement.
