Posted on Oct 21, 2016

ZSWS attorneys Robert Burkart and Keith Vonderahe successfully defended the City of Evansville and an Evansville Police Department officer against multiple, federal claims case involving the use of force. U.S. Southern District of Indiana Judge Sarah Evans Barker found that the officer’s use of deadly force to subdue a suspect after warning him to drop his weapon and surrender was reasonable and not in violation of the 4th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.  As a result, the judge dismissed the case.
