Summary

Law enforcement misconduct is a complex area of law demanding diligence from a skilled attorney. Litigation is tedious and discovery is voluminous. Effectively deposing the shooting officer and precisely reconstructing the shooting are the single most important litigation techniques in any police shooting case. Crafting a robust 12(b)(6) proof Monell claim and understanding deliberate indifference principles within a jail setting will open doors to discovery essential to proving your case. Learning the basics from skilled police and jail misconduct litigators is key.
