Manning & Kass Partner Tony M. Sain and Associate Lynn L. Carpenter have won a unanimous defense verdict for the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department in a federal civil rights jury trial. Plaintiff alleged that the Department’s K-9 deputy used excessive force by biting plaintiff and that officers left the police dog on the bite for too long at a time when plaintiff was not a threat. After a five day trial and less than 90 minutes of deliberations, the jury disagreed and returned a verdict in favor of our clients. This victory comes just two months after Sain and Carpenter delivered another defense verdict for Riverside County in the trial of Tucker v. County of Riverside.
