Dog + Animal Bites

Drug Seizure Simulation Causes Police Dog to Bite Child

We contended that a judge and city police created a needlessly dangerous situation for elementary school children by organizing a skit where real drugs were placed on children in a court room, with police drug dogs then brought in to perform a search and seizure of the drugs. As a result, an elementary student received a severe bite on the back of his leg, leaving scarring and nerve damage. After battling and defeating summary judgment motions filed by the judge claiming judicial immunity and by the police claiming they did not know the police dog would bite, our clients settled this matter with the defendants.
