Manning & Kass Team Strikes Again In Federal Court

The Manning & Kass Governmental Entity Liability practice continues its streak of positive results. Practice Co-Leader Mildred K. O’Linn and Partner Lynn L. Carpenter defended a compelling case where all federal and state claims based on use of force were dismissed by the Court. This case arises from a January 1, 2020, 9-1-1 emergency call that was made to the Nevada County Sheriff's Office dispatch. The caller reported that he observed a man walking down Squirrel Creek Rd. in an unincorporated area of Nevada County, carrying a shotgun in his hand. The man with the shotgun was on supervised release related to pending felony firearms charges, and had a history of mental illness.
