Cops hit with illegal arrest lawsuit
I missed this one – from New Jersey Lawyer:
Hoboken cops facing illegal arrest damages
“Three Hoboken police detectives who barged into a Guttenberg apartment and arrested the occupant, only to release him three hours later when it became clear he was not the suspect they sought, now will be liable for damages at a future trial.
Essex County Judge Mary K. Costello granted a summary judgment motion against the three detectives on charges that following a false lead, they illegally arrested Guttenberg resident Gregory Martin and searched his apartment after he tried to close his door in front of them.”
