Summary

In light of the recent events following the death of George Floyd and the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement, a discussion of how to ensure our communities are safe and hold police officers accountable for unconstitutional acts has taken over the national dialogue. Although both federal and California law provide remedies for victims of excessive force, these cases are challenging, from the initial pleading stage, law-and-motion practice, jury selection, trial, and keeping a verdict on appeal. Attorneys John Burris, David Helbraun, and Matt Kita will outline the law as it presently stands, and offer advice from their experience litigating these cases on how to best represent potential clients through each stage of the process.
