Wilmington, the Norman Law Firm, and ACLU-DE Settle Lawsuit Over Unconstitutional Arrests
Update 5/8/2020: Victory on the county track of the lawsuit!
In late 2015, we learned through our client Jonathan Rudenberg's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that the Delaware State Police had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to purchase devices that spy on cell phones. DSP didn't want to tell us about that technology. So we sued.
November 21, 2016: Our suit against officials at the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center for mistreatment of our client, a transgender prisoner there, is ongoing. Our initial motion for a preliminary injunction was denied.
In 2012, several Delaware prisoners who had been held in prison beyond the end of their sentences filed a class action suit against senior Department of Correction officials to obtain compensation and a court order requiring DOC to fix its broken release system.
n September, we filed suit on behalf of a Delaware couple subjected to the unlawful and excessive use of force by the Delaware State Police as the result of a perfect storm of bad policing.
