As you can imagine, the police department did not like getting sued. Over the course of this litigation, the government threw seven different defense attorneys at us. It also tried to prevent us from getting documents and other materials that should have been turned over during the discovery process. Undeterred, we filed a motion to compel the government to produce documents, which the federal magistrate judge largely granted. Consistent with our motion, the judge ruled that the government, by failing to comply with the rules, had waived its attorney-client privilege—a highly unusual sanction against a governmental entity. If you’re interested in the details, you’re welcome to read the Lawsuit, the Motion to Compel, and the Court’s Order.
Because of our aggressive lawyering, we were able to achieve an excellent result for Jordan—the government paid $200,000 to resolve her case. This money represented many years’ earnings for Jordan, and she was able to use it to fund her college education. We’re so proud of Jordan, and we know she is going to do great things in the future!
