New Jersey managing partner Andy Siegeltuch recently obtained a defense verdict in U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of a security officer for the Camden County Board of Social Services in a federal civil rights case. The officer had been accused of choking unconscious, kicking and dragging the plaintiff, a customer of the Board, following a verbal encounter between the two. The plaintiff asserted the officer used execessive force during the encounter, in violation of his 4th Amendment rights, a claim the jury rejected.
