At the conclusion of a week-long jury trial, RYAN BOLICK (Charlotte) obtained a defense verdict that the officers of a municipality did not use excessive force in effectuating an arrest of the plaintiff and that the officers and the City were not liable to the plaintiff for the injuries sustained during his arrest. Plaintiff claimed that the officers battered him and allowed police dogs to bite him unnecessarily. The defense argued that the use of force by the officers and the K-9s was reasonable under the circumstances.
