Law and motion is everything in a police abuse case. Motions to compel and Pitchess motions will open doors to key discovery you need against the police officer and the law enforcement agency, including officer disciplinary files and citizen complaints, internal affairs investigations, and the documents you’ll need to establish the unconstitutional custom, practice or policy. Denisse will teach you the nuances of federal and state discovery and how to counter the common objections the defense will rely on to withhold discovery. A motion for summary judgment is almost a guarantee in a police abuse case. Dante will teach you how to establish triable issues of fact and how to understand qualified immunity principles which can make or break your entire case, no matter the egregiousness of the constitutional violation.
