Nice win in police brutality jury trial

Greg Kafoury and company had a phenomenal victory in a civil rights case in Multnomah County.  They won an $82K award for a woman who was violently arrested after asking an officer for his card.  While this is a good result, the underlying facts are very unfortunate because they are all too familiar.  This is another instance of excessive force by a recidivist police officer (Aaron Dauchy) with an obvious racial component.

In another Oregon civil rights case, the State agreed to pay $400K for denying a prisoner at Coffee Creek medical care.
