Manning & Kass Founding Partner Eugene P. Ramirez just concluded a 4-week Superior Court civil trial representing the City of Huntington Beach in a wrongful death suit brought after an officer-involved shooting that occurred in 2017. Two officers responded to a call of a man chasing people and trying to hit them in a sports park crowded with adults and children. The man was armed with a broken bottle and a sharpened tree branch. It was learned later that he was high on methamphetamine. After chasing the man and ordering him to stop and put down the weapons, he failed to comply and threatened a woman and her young son nearby. The officers discharged their firearms and the suspect went down and died at the scene.
