Appellate Litigation Clinic gets victory in U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit case

Friday, May 10, 2019

The Appellate Litigation Clinic won an excessive-force case before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. In Altony Brooks v. Captain Jacumin, the court agreed with all of the clinic's substantive arguments: there was enough evidence of excessive force to make it a jury question; the officer who used a taser on the clinic's client should be brought back into the case; the client should get a copy of the detention center's use-of-force policy and the district court on remand needs consider appointing counsel. Third-year students Wade H. Barron, C. Daniel Lockaby and Sarah A. Quattrocchi assisted with the case.
