Sam Hall and Tim Johnson recently obtained a favorable verdict in a federal civil rights trial challenging a Wisconsin sheriff’s deputy use of deadly force. The plaintiff, who was shot three times, claimed that the officer used excessive force in responding to a call that began as a call for assistance based on suicidal threats. After the four day trial in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, the jury returned a verdict in favor of the law enforcement officer, finding the shooting legally justified. The plaintiff had sought $4.5 million in compensatory damages in addition to an unspecified amount in punitive damages.
