$100,000 Trial Verdict For Civil Rights Victim


Judd Shaw Injury Law’s client (“H.O.”) was struck in the face during an altercation with a police officer with the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey. H.O. sustained a fracture of the maxillary spine (facial bone) and laceration of the lip, resulting in permanent scarring. During a two week trial in Brooklyn’s Federal Court, liability was hotly contested. H.O. stood alone on his version of the events as all other witnesses alleged H.O. caused his own injuries while fleeing the police. Judd Shaw tried the case before a jury and argued the injuries were caused by the police in violation of H.O.’s civil rights. Judd Shaw Injury Law obtained a $100,000.00+ verdict on behalf of H.O.
