The partners and employees of Queller, Fisher, Washor, Fuchs & Kool, LLP wish to congratulate our partner, Dallin M. Fuchs, on his recent settlement of a Bronx police brutality case involving the New York City Police Department. The case involved a 35-year old man detained by store security at a Target store in the Bronx on suspicion of shoplifting. Following his detention by store security, the NYPD arrived. Video evidence showed the plaintiff being brutally beaten by an NYPD while rear-handcuffed. He sustained a nasal fracture and ruptured eardrum as a result of the assault. This matter was settled during the Discovery phase of the litigation for $500,000. Mr. Fuchs was able to successfully argue that the plaintiff was not only injured, but was deprived of his liberty sustaining emotional distress as a result. Through his efforts, Mr. Fuchs was able to achieve this tremendous result for his client.
