Bankers looses lawsuit against Los Angeles police officers

Bankers looses lawsuit against Los Angeles police officers

Brian Mulligan lost a lawsuit against two Los Angeles Police Department officers after a jury cleared them Friday of any wrongdoing in an arrest.

Mulligan, a former bank executive, alleged that he was a victim of excessive police force, testifying that LAPD officers John Miller and James Nichols beat him in 2012.

The defense showed evidence that Mulligan was in a drug-induced psychotic state. Apparently, he snorted “bath salts,” an amphetamine-like drug, prior to the arrest. Two days before his encounter with LAPD officers Miller and Nichols, Mulligan was recorded telling a Glendale police officer he had snorted the drug.

Mulligan testified that after his encounter with the Glendale officer, he went to Eagle Rock to get medical marijuana. Numerous witnesses testified that on the night of his LAPD encounter in May 2012, he was alone and yelling; trying to open car doors and saying someone was following him.

When the two officers responded, Mulligan passed a field sobriety test. The officers testified that Mulligan wanted to go to a motel and sleep it off, but an hour later, he was found in the middle of traffic trying to carjack a moving vehicle.

The prosecution claimed Mulligan didn’t deserve to be beaten regardless of his mental state at the time. Doctors had differing opinions on whether a baton caused Mulligan’s injuries. It was not known if the injuries were sustained when he resisted arrest and slammed his own face on the pavement. The defense noted Nichols did not have his baton at the time of Mulligan’s arrest.

Woman says LAPD officer assaulted her while she was handcuffed in patrol car

Woman says LAPD cop assaulted her while she was handcuffed in patrol car

A 28-year-old woman, who fell out of a moving LAPD police car, has accused an LAPD officer of sexually assaulting her while she was handcuffed in the back seat of the vehicle.

This is just another piece to an already suspicious account. At the time of the alleged assault, the woman was taken into custody on suspicion of public intoxication on March 17.

After being taken into custody, the woman testified that one of the officers climbed into the back seat and began, “assaulting me, molesting me” after a brief stop.

During her disposition, the woman said, “he was grabbing my left inner thigh, you know, trying to – I’m assuming opening my legs, touching my chest, grabbing at it.”

Once the vehicle began moving, around three in the morning, a security camera captured the patrol car pass out of view. Moments later it can be seen on the security camera footage a woman wearing only an undergarment over her chest lying motionless in the street.

The officer’s report stated that the woman had fallen out of the vehicle as the patrol car accelerated to about 10 mph after stopping at a traffic light. The video footage contradicts the officers’ account to the paramedics.

The woman suffered a shattered jaw, severe headaches, and general pain.

Cmdr. Andy Smith, a spokesperson for the LAPD, said an internal investigation was opened immediately after the LAPD Internal Affairs Division was alerted to the woman’s allegations.  The investigation remains open at this time. The two officers remain in the field, Smith said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

LAPD Racial Profiling Goes to College

As the school year comes to an end at University of Southern California (USC), students who are anxious to graduate or to complete another year look for experiences in which they can relax and avoid the stresses of upcoming finals and deciding grades.

Nate Howard, a senior at USC, attempted to provide an event like that last Friday night. He threw a party at his house near the campus to celebrate the upcoming graduation that was registered with campus police and required student IDs at the door to ensure that it would not get out of hand. However, at about 2 a.m. Saturday, the Los Angeles Police Department arrived in a manner that suggested it had gotten severely out of hand.

Over 80 LAPD officers showed up to the house in riot gear and with a helicopter after receiving noise complaints from the neighbors. They used excessive force to empty the house of students, applied handcuffs and even arrested six students – Howard was one of them.

The reason for LAPD’s unnecessarily intense reaction to noise complaints? Perhaps the fact that the party was comprised of mostly African-American students, so prejudices and stereotypes were utilized.

Since the event, USC has seen protests and even held a meeting with LAPD on campus. Howard was accompanied in his protest by over 100 students that held signs reading, “We are scholars not criminals.” The party organizer also criticizes LAPD’s priorities as it sent 80 officers to one party when they could/should have been doing something else.

The next day after the protest, a panel of LAPD officers spoke with a packed audience of students in a USC auditorium that holds 1200. LAPD Captain Paul Snell explained how the police responded to a noise complaint and felt threatened, but “[he does] not believe that this was race-based.”

However, based on the fact that there was a party across the street from Howard’s house that was attended by mostly white students and was handled in a much more tame way, that doesn’t seem true. Sarah Tither-Kaplan explains how her party was just as loud and police arrived after receiving noise complaints, but no one was arrested or forced out.

LAPD assures the students that it will look further into the matter after hearing that all attendees of the meeting felt that the attack was race-based. Depending on LAPD’s next move, it may face trial for a lawsuit of racial discrimination.

If you feel that you have been mistreated, abused, neglected or simply want appropriate compensation for any suffering that you have experienced, contact an accident attorney today to see what you can do.

Los Angeles Residents Mistakenly Shot during Dorner Manhunt Receive $4.2 Million from the City

Margie Carranza and her mother Emma Hernandez were in the midst of their newspaper deliveries on February 7, 2013 when Los Angeles police officers fired around one-hundred shots at their truck. The ladies were driving a blue Toyota pickup that was mistaken for Chris Dorner’s grey Nissan truck. During the shootout, Hernandez was shot in the back and Carranza suffered injuries from the broken glass.

Chris Dorner became the target of one of Los Angeles’s largest manhunts after killing former LAPD Captain Randal Quan’s daughter, Monica and her fiancé Keith Lawrence, a campus police officer in a parking garage.

By the end of Dorner’s reign, he had killed one civilian, killed two police officers and wounded three, kidnapped two people, and then killed himself.

Chris Dorner had written out a manifesto on his social media sites that exposed his plans. He wrote who he was to kill and why. Dorner felt that his termination from the LAPD was erroneous and everyone involved was now at risk. Given his naval and LAPD background, he was someone to approach cautiously.

Police officers followed him up to house in Angelus Oaks, California where the final standoff was held. In the action, Dorner killed a police officer and himself, and the house was burned down in an effort to force him out.

After he killed Quan and Lawrence, LAPD and then the additional officers from San Bernardino County worked hard to end the terror as quickly as they could, and because of that, mistakes occurred. The desire to stop the panic turned into action being stronger than planning.

The women have been awarded a $4.2 settlement from Los Angeles on top of the $40,000 received for car reparations after the incident. Carranza and her mother are splitting the settlement, each receiving $2.1 million.

For any legal matters, contact an accident attorney today.

Four Killed Inside Filthy Northridge Home

Property owners who offer apartments, condos or homes for lease or rent have a legal responsibility to maintain a clean and safe environment. Their failure to keep up their property is negligence.

The Northridge home where four people were found shot and killed early Sunday morning was an unlicensed boarding home, where as many as 17 people lived.

The shooting occurred about 4:25 a.m. Sunday at a house in the 17400 block of Devonshire Street. After receiving a 911 call describing yelling and gunfire, officers went to the home and found two men and two women shot dead outside.

The names of the victims have not been released, and the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office said a security hold had been placed on the case.

Officials from the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety inspected some areas of the property on Sunday, except for those restricted by the police investigation.

City staff is researching records to determine whether the building was properly permitted and what, if any, inspections may have taken place.

According to building records, the most recent city interaction at the home appears to be in June 2009, when code enforcement received a call reporting that the garage had been converted into a dwelling without a permit.

The call was made June 2, but an inspection of the property on June 26 concluded that the garage had not been converted, and the case was closed.

In 2003, the property owner was cited for unpermitted construction to create a carport and extend the roof and unpermitted outdoor storage of construction materials.

The owner of the home, Yag Kapil, said he was sleeping at the time of the shootings and “didn’t hear it at all.”

Kapil denied that the home, which he said he owned since 1968, was a boarding home.

He said he does not know the people who were killed and that they did not rent rooms from him.

If a loved one was the victim of wrongful death that was caused by negligence or some other form of reckless behavior, it is important that you contact a committed and dedicated personal injury lawyer to help you decide if you should file a lawsuit. A competent and reputable injury lawyer can help you receive the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.

Lindsay Lohan Is Jealous Of Amanda Bynes

Troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan doesn’t understand why cops are giving Amanda Bynes a break. Maybe it’s because Bynes doesn’t quite have a long enough rap sheet.

Lindsay Lohan, who knows her away around the criminal justice system, thinks the cops and prosecutors are going easy on actress Amanda Bynes.

This mugshot is found from http://www.perezhil...

This mugshot is found from http://www.perezhilton.com, and the original is from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. All mugshots from there are released into in the public domain.http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Meegs&diff=prev&oldid=108863911 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Bynes, the Nickelodeon TV child star turned “Easy A ” actress, was pulled over Sunday by Burbank airport police while driving her BMW. The officer cited Bynes, towed her car and let her go.

At the time of the incident, Bynes was already facing two hit-and-run charges and one of driving under the influence. Her driver’s license was revoked August 25 after the hit-and-run charges.

The fact that Bynes was let go Sunday seemed to irk Lohan, who was arrested and hauled off to jail several times while on supervised probation for five years for a DUI and a subsequent charge of shoplifting jewelry.

“Why did I get put in jail and a nickelodeon star has had NO punishment(s) so far?” Lohan wrote on Twitter.

The tweet was quickly endorsed by some of her 4-million-plus followers on the social network.

Bynes, 25, is facing a drunk-driving charge after hitting a Los Angeles County sheriff’s cruiser April 6 in West Hollywood. After two more charges of hit and run were filed earlier this month, Bynes’ driver’s license was suspended, officials with the state Department of Motor Vehicles said. The charges are in connection with incidents April 10 and Aug. 4.

Lohan’s criticism may be motivated in part by the news that Bynes was pulled over Sept. 9 because her lights were not on. In that incident, Los Angeles police officers never asked for her driver’s license, which had been suspended Aug 25. Driving with a suspended license is against the law.

Then Sunday about 8:20 a.m., airport police pulled Bynes over. But instead of arresting her and taking her into custody, police cited and released her.

“These are the moments that I appreciate, my life experiences, living without regrets and Disney for supporting me as an actress — night all,” Lohan posted on Twitter shortly after her Bynes comment.

Lohan’s career is rebounding after an  L.A. County Superior Court judge ended her supervised probation in March and praised her for completing her community service and ending five years of criminal court appearances that saw her jailed several times.

During Lohan’s lengthy probation stemming from two DUI arrests, she has been repeatedly jailed by judges for various violations, including using drugs and alcohol and failing to perform her required community service at a downtown women’s center.

Judge Stephanie Sautner sentenced Lohan to jail and saw her placed under house arrest for her probation violations. Sautner then imposed a strict set of monthly community service and therapy requirements with a warning that the actress would be jailed if she did anything wrong.

Lohan has publicly credited the judge and Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Holley, with helping her rebuild her life and career, which hit rock bottom with the necklace theft conviction.

She recently completed a movie for Lifetime, in which she plays actress Elizabeth Taylor.

If you or a loved one were the victim of a car accident that was caused by negligence or some other form of reckless behavior, it is important that you contact a committed and dedicated personal injury lawyer to help you decide if you should file a lawsuit.

LAPD Under Fire For Death Of An L.A. Woman

The Los Angeles Police Department has a bad PR problem. In fact, they’ve had a bad PR problem since before the Los Angeles Riots in 1992. It spans to the time of Chief Daryl Gates.

At least five Los Angeles police officers are under investigation in the death of a woman who stopped breathing during a struggle that included an officer stomping on her genital area and the use of additional force by others to take her into custody, police officials confirmed Thursday.

Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Bell 206 ...

The altercation in front of her South Los Angeles apartment was captured by a patrol car’s video camera.

When asked about the incident, LAPD Commander Bob Green confirmed that one officer, while trying to get Alesia Thomas into the back of a patrol car, threatened to kick Thomas in the genitals if she did not comply, and then followed through on her threat.

After officers forced Thomas into the back seat of the police car, she is seen on the video breathing shallowly; she eventually stopped breathing.

“I take all in-custody death investigations very seriously,” LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said in a statement late Thursday. “I am confident we will get to the truth no matter where that leads us.”

The incident came to light a day after Beck announced he was transferring a captain from his command after a separate videotaped incident in which officers were shown slamming a handcuffed woman to the ground. Beck said that video raised concerns and that the department was investigating the officers.

The Thomas case occurred in the early morning hours of July 22 after she left her 3-year-old and 12-year-old children at the LAPD’s Southeast Area station, according to a department account released the following day. Green, who oversees the Southeast Area station, confirmed that Thomas tried to surrender custody of the children to police because she was a drug addict and felt she could not care for them.

Officers went in search of Thomas, finding her at her home in the 9000 block of South Broadway. After questioning her briefly, the officers attempted to arrest her on suspicion of child endangerment, the department’s account said.

Thomas “began actively resisting arrest” and one of the officers took her to the ground by sweeping her legs from beneath her, the LAPD’s official account said. Two others handcuffed Thomas’ hands behind her back and attempted to lead her to a patrol car while a supervising sergeant observed, according to the department’s version.

Two more officers were summoned as Thomas continued to struggle. Green confirmed that Thomas was a large woman. A “hobble restraint device” — an adjustable strap — was tightened around Thomas’ ankles to give the officers more control and she was eventually placed in the back of the patrol car, the LAPD account said.

The official account, however, made no mention of what Green confirmed was a female officer’s questionable treatment of Thomas.

The department’s account said officers immediately notified paramedics. It is unclear whether the officers attempted to resuscitate her and how much time passed before paramedics arrived. Thomas died shortly after being transported to a hospital.

A neighbor who witnessed part of the incident said he did not see officers do anything wrong and described Thomas as the aggressor.

Gerald McCrary Sr., 55, said he was awakened by the commotion and saw police wrestling with Thomas, who managed to break free from plastic handcuffs. The officers secured her with metal handcuffs and tried to calm her down as she sat against a wall, McCrary said.

“They were talking to her, asking her to calm down, that everything will be all right,” he recalled. They brought Thomas some water to drink.

“My heart hurts. I can’t walk anymore,” he recalled Thomas telling police.

Two officers escorted her down the stairs in her apartment complex, one on each arm. McCrary eventually followed and said he saw Thomas in a patrol car “shaking her head against the back seat.” Some time later, he saw her sprawled out on the sidewalk without a blouse. Paramedics had just arrived.

McCrary said police interviewed him on two separate occasions about the incident but never mentioned that Thomas was dead.

Charmaine Hood, McCrary’s live-in caregiver, also witnessed Thomas’ encounter with police. She said officers were trying to help Thomas.

“I didn’t see them try to harm her in any shape or fashion,” Hood said. “I seen them protect her from hurting herself.”

Lindsay Lohan Is Also A Thief

Not only does Lindsay Lohan have a drug problem. Apparently, she also likes to steal from people’s homes. We sincerely hope that the troubled starlet doesn’t run into LL Cool J anytime soon.

Although Lohan is off the hook concerning a theft from a Hollywood Hills home, she seemed still upset about the situation four days after the alleged incident, according to her Twitter comments.

This mugshot is found from http://www.perezhil...

The actress went to Twitter to decry “lies” being told about her regarding the theft.

“Whenever I’m doing great, people fabricate lies.” Lohan wrote. “It’s such a shame.”

Los Angeles Police Department detectives had presented evidence to prosecutors Tuesday after several days of investigation, identifying Lohan as well as Gavin Lawrence Doyle and Andrew Nicholas Payan as suspects in the case.

Lohan and one of the alleged victims, identified as millionaire Sam Magid, had a “long-standing relationship,” and he did not identify any of the suspects, prosecutors said.

Although one of the suspects made a “vague admission” that someone had taken something, none of the suspects was found with any property.

In addition, prosecutors noted in the filing that eyewitnesses in the case did not cooperate with authorities, and the victims did not wish to pursue a criminal prosecution of the case.

LAPD detectives had been seeking to talk with Lohan after several items, including cash, sunglasses and a credit card holder, were reported stolen from a home Aug. 18.

The incident is the latest in a series of brushes with the law for Lohan, who has been trying to put her much-chronicled legal troubles behind her and resume her acting career.

She was on probation for a 2007 conviction for driving under the influence. Since then, she has also been convicted of shoplifting and was on probation for that offense as well.

Lohan was sent to jail several times for violating the terms of her probation. But she hewed to a strict regimen of counseling and community service at the county morgue.

In March, a judge ended her probation in the DUI case and reduced the shoplifting probation to unsupervised status.

In the latest case, according to prosecutors, the victims were asleep in the residence about 7:45 a.m. Aug. 18, when they became aware that someone was trying to get into the master bedroom of the home.

They searched for the suspects and saw a man later identified as Doyle standing outside the home. The man fled. While trying to call 911, an unidentified woman at the home saw a newer model BMW parked in front of the home and a second man enter the vehicle, which then drove away.

When LAPD officers arrived at the home, the victims reported that keys from cars at the home as well as cash, sunglasses and a credit card holder were missing.

Day laborers working across the street identified two men and a woman who arrived at the residence in a tan BMW around the time the crime reportedly occurred and then went inside.

But police were unable to find any evidence of forced entry into the cars or the home. A security guard interviewed by police said that at 2 a.m. that morning Lohan came to the home and wanted to enter it to speak with Magid.

She was told she could not come in and asked the guard if Magid was in the home with “some other girl.”

If a loved one was the victim of harassment that was caused by negligence or some other form of reckless behavior, it is important that you contact a committed and dedicated personal injury lawyer to help you decide if you should file a lawsuit. A competent and reputable injury lawyer can help you receive the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.

LAPD Allegedly Abuse Bank Executives

No one likes bank fees of any kind. No one wants to pay money to use an ATM, cash a check or transfer money. No one wants to pay a fee to maintain a minimum balance or a fee to have overdraft protection. Like it or not, fees are one of the ways that banks make money. Just because you don’t like fees, however, doesn’t mean that you should beat bankers up.

A bank executive has filed a claim with the city of Los Angeles, saying he suffered at least $50 million in damages after he was severely beaten up by two LAPD officers.

The beating allegedly occurred May 15 in Highland Park, where Brian C. Mulligan, a managing director and vice chairman at Deutsche Bank, says he was hurt so badly, he suffered 15 fractures to his nose and needed dozens of stitches.

But officers said they had to use force to subdue a snarling, thrashing man who arched his back, waved his arms, stiffened his fingers like claws and charged them on a residential street, according to a police report.

One of Mulligan’s attorneys, J. Michael Flanagan, offered a more bizarre version of events: that the officers dragged Mulligan to a down-market motel and threatened to kill him if he left. When they discovered that Mulligan had escaped, his attorney said, the officers beat him.

No charges have been filed against Mulligan, though a spokesman for the city attorney’s office, which handles misdemeanor crimes, said the incident was under review.

Mulligan is a longtime Hollywood money man and deal maker who has served as co-chairman of Universal Pictures, chief financial officer of Seagram, Universal’s former owner, and chairman of News Corp.’s Fox Television. Mulligan, 53, joined Deutsche Bank in 2009.

He lives in upscale La Cañada Flintridge, less than 10 miles from the grittier Los Angeles neighborhood of Highland Park.

On the night of May 15, his attorney Flanagan said in an interview, Mulligan drove to a dispensary on the border of Highland Park and Eagle Rock to buy medical marijuana products, which help him sleep.

He said law enforcement officers — he was uncertain from what agency — detained him, walked him to a run-down apartment complex and told him to go to the fourth floor, his attorney said. While making his way through the building, Mulligan panicked, his attorney said. He ran to the street, spotted some law enforcement officers and sprinted in the opposite direction.

Mulligan thought he’d be safe if he reached Occidental College, less than a mile away, Flanagan said.

“He was running for his life,” the attorney said.

About 10:20 p.m., LAPD Officers James Nichols and John Miller responded to a report of a white male trying to break into a car outside a Jack in the Box, the police report said. Soon a second call came in reporting a similar break-in attempt — and a similar-looking suspect — not far away.

The officers came across Mulligan near an entrance to Occidental. Dressed in a pink shirt and tan pants, he matched the description of the would-be burglar, according to the report. His attorney said Mulligan never tried to pry open car doors.

He was drenched in sweat and walked with an “unsteady gait,” the police report said.

Yet he passed several sobriety tests. According to the report, Mulligan told police that he’d ingested marijuana and, in recent days, “white lightning,” a nickname for powerful drugs known as bath salts.

He said he hadn’t slept in four days, was going through a divorce and felt depressed, the report said. Mulligan also said he was being chased, according to the report, which nonetheless described him as calm, lucid and cooperative.

Mulligan denies saying any of this or being under the influence of any drug that night, his attorney said. The officers drove Mulligan to his Toyota Prius, which they searched; Mulligan’s attorney said he had not given them permission. They found his Irish passport and enough cash that they called in a supervisor, said the report, which did not specify an amount.

Mulligan’s claim pegged the cash at about $5,000, a sum he said he normally carried for business travel. Then police took Mulligan — whose cellphone and passport remained in his car, his attorneys said — to the nearby Highland Park Motel, a low-rent building across from homes with barred windows.

From here, the two sides’ accounts diverge wildly.

Mama Said Knock You Out

Who would have guessed that LL Cool J was really a superhero disguised as a rapper! It’s true! LL Cool J finally lived up to the hype of one of his hit singles. Apparently, when the hip hop veteran isn’t rapping or acting, he’s fighting crime – without the need for a gun.

LL Cool J put his “NCIS: Los Angeles” training to good use against a burglar in his L.A. home early Wednesday morning.

A burglar who broke into the Studio City home of actor-rapper LL Cool J  suffered a broken nose and jaw in what police sources described as a “knock-down, drag-out” fight.

Los Angeles police were called to the star’s home in the 12000 block of Blairwood Drive around 1 a.m. Wednesday, officials said. LL Cool J was holding the suspect when officers arrived, officials said.

LL Cool J, born James Todd Smith, rose to fame with musical hits such as “Mama Said Knock You Out” and “I’m Bad” and several other hits. He currently stars in “NCIS: Los Angeles.”

Detectives were waiting to interview the suspect, who was not immediately identified, at a hospital where he was being treated. The suspect is described as a transient, and police could not immediately say whether he had a criminal record.

LL Cool J was upstairs in his home when he heard noises coming from the kitchen area. When he went down to see what was happening, the unidentified suspect came at him, leading to the fight.

One could only imagine what would happen if Snoop Dogg’s (aka Snoop Lion) house were robbed.
