Attorney Ed Tobin obtained a defense verdict in Federal District Court on behalf of local Police Officers accused of using excessive force while arresting plaintiff. Mr. Tobin presented evidence that the use of pepper spray and tasers was reasonable and necessary to perform the lawful arrest of the plaintiff under the circumstances. Plaintiff was in possession of illegal narcotics and handguns and the jury recognized that the officers were lawfully performing their duties and used the amount of force reasonably necessary when plaintiff began to fight the officers, injuring one of them. The Firm is pleased to have had the opportunity to defend such stalwart local police officers. Aaron Carbone, Esq. assisted Mr. Tobin in the defense of this case.
