lawsuit

The city of Alameda has settled a lawsuit that accused one of its officers of excessive physical force stemming from an arrest of a disabled Alameda resident in 2012. 

Attorneys Panos Langos and Susan Kang Gordon announced in a press release that their client Jeffery Navarro settled his civil rights case against the City and Sgt. Patrick Wyeth of the Alameda Police Department for $450,000. 

The city has scored what officials hope is a final legal victory in a trio of bondholder lawsuits that followed the sale of Alameda Municipal Power’s telecommunications business in 2008.
