While the family of Justine Ruszczyk Damond has yet to file any kind of lawsuit related to her shooting death by Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor, Twin Cities lawyers say the payout could be a record. Noor, 32, was charged last week with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the July 15 death of Damond, 40, a spiritual healer who was shot by Noor in the alley behind her south Minneapolis home after she called to report a possible sexual assault. Regardless of the outcome in the criminal case, a lawsuit against the city of Minneapolis is all but certain. The family is represented by Robert Bennett, the dean of Minnesota lawyers when it comes to police misconduct lawsuits, who has won millions of dollars in settlements. Joseph Daly, an emeritus professor at the Mitchell Hamline School of Law, thinks Bennett will win a settlement of $10 million or more. “It would surprise me if this case went for $20 million, but it wouldn’t shock me,” he said. … [Read more...] about Record payout could come from Minneapolis if lawsuit is filed in Justin Ruszczyk Damond death

This week saw Bonnie and Isaac hit new heights of desperation, Annalise facing the demise of her class action lawsuit, and Laurel finally getting to meet her baby. While it felt like the juiciest stuff all happened in the last 10 minutes, most of it was so explosive it ended up being worth the wait. Four seasons in, the show can’t quite capture the urgency it once had, which often makes episodes drag — but they sure can still nail cliffhangers and bombshell endings. We go backwards in time from the end of last week’s episode to see Isaac in his car having a breakdown after the trial. He goes to a food truck to buy a hamburger pills, which he promptly crushes and snorts once home. When Annalise came to check on him, he was high — busy flashing back to the night Stella died. Back at Chez Asher and Michaela, the Keating Four are working hard to prep the class action for court. Well, three of them are working hard — Asher is just baking 24/7, which really … [Read more...] about How to Get Away With Murder recap: ‘Ask Him About Stella’
It is not in dispute that Itamar Vardi touched the 8-year-old boy in December 2016 after believing that the boy had littered. It is the nature of the touch that is greatly contested. The boy — a son of Jacqueline Craig — and one of his sisters allege that Vardi grabbed the boy around the back of the neck and forced him down on the sidewalk, only letting go once the child had picked up some raisins that had fallen from a package he’d tossed to a younger brother. Vardi’s defense attorney, Bobbie Edmonds, insists that Vardi only touched the boy on the shoulder while directing him to pick up the trash. It’s an incident that would not usually draw much attention. But it pushed Fort Worth into the national spotlight because of the controversial handling of the call by police officer William Martin — conduct that was recorded by one of the boy’s sisters and broadcast to the world through social media. More than a month after the altercation, Vardi was … [Read more...] about He’s accused of a Class C misdemeanor, so why’s everyone so interested in his trial?
