Posted By Galluzzo & Arnone || 18-Dec-2013

Galluzzo & Arnone recently settled the federal civil rights lawsuit of a foreign doctor and his wife who were wrongfully arrested at a restaurant in New York City for allegedly assaulting a police officer. G&A represented them both in the criminal case and were able to obtain dismissals of all charges by presenting numerous sworn eyewitness statements to the prosecutor, who agreed to the dismissals. G&A then filed a federal civil rights lawsuit for wrongful arrest on their behalf, and the matter recently settled for a significant amount of money.
