Civil Rights – Pittsburgh – Police Officer – Motion to Dismiss

One of our Pittsburgh based partners, Thomas Gebler, Esq., successfully extracted his two Police Officer clients, as well as the Township which employed them, from a civil action filed in the U.S. District Court, Western District.  The Plaintiffs alleged the Police Officers, responding to multiple calls involving a series of disputes between adjacent property owners, had violated their civil rights.  The Court granted Mr. Gebler’s Motion to Dismiss agreeing with the position that the claimed civil rights violations could not be supported by the Police Officers issuance of various citations associated with the dispute.
