Another successful civil rights case against the City of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) as well as 13 S.W.A.T. police offers who used extreme excessive forceand simultaneously shot at an unarmed person. Anthony Soderberg was shot over 45 times from distances ranging from 100 – 600 feet away – including from a helicopter – claiming their use of force was reasonable as they feared for their safety. After over two years of discovery, we successfully prepared the matter for trial and discovered – on the eve of trial – a S.W.A.T. Officer who had filed internal complaints regarding the civil rights violations he had witnessed against Mr. Soderberg. All parties agreed to resolve the matter for $1,150,000.00.
