Webster Szanyi attorney Shannon O’Neill recently obtained a favorable decision on behalf of a County, Sheriff, and their police officers. The plaintiff brought a lawsuit in federal court alleging that he was falsely arrested and the arrest was made pursuant to the County’s STOP-DWI program, which the plaintiff claimed was unconstitutional. Ms. O’Neill filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit on the grounds that plaintiff had pled guilty to a lesser charge, which barred his ability to challenge the underlying arrest, and the accompanying Monell claim should be dismissed because there was no constitutional violation. Magistrate Judge Roemer agreed with the defendants’ arguments and dismissed plaintiff’s lawsuit.
Webster Szanyi attorneys are top notch. As County Attorney, I have worked with attorneys at the firm extensively for over twenty years on labor and employment and a variety of litigation matters. The quality of their work is consistently excellent, always demonstrating their commitment to providing superior, timely and cost-effective representation.
