Civil Rights

We represented a man in Washington, DC who was mistakenly believed to be the cause of a disruption at a restaurant in Washington DC, and who was grabbed from behind and forced to the ground, thereby injuring his knee. We filed suit against the restaurant, but the restaurant’s insurance company refused to provide coverage or a lawyer for the restaurant. After proceeding against the restaurant, we obtained a default judgment for $340,000. We then filed suit against the insurance company seeking to force it to pay the judgment. The insurance company eventually settled the case by agreeing to pay $80,000 of the judgment.
