AssaultVirginia Anderman obtained summary judgment in a civil rights case where plaintiff claimed that he was wrongfully arrested by defendant without probable cause following a family dispute. Plaintiff claimed the officer did not properly investigate the facts and that Plaintiff should not have been arrested. He sued under 42 USC § 1983 and brought tort claims (false arrest, assault and battery and false imprisonment) under state law. Virginia filed her motion for summary judgment based on qualified immunity grounds arguing that the officer acted reasonably based on the information he had. The Court agreed with Virginia and granted summary judgment in favor of defendants but declined to rule on the state claims. There was a mediation held and Plaintiff wanted at least $150,000 to settle.
