Haluck and Ubl Successfully Defend Excessive Force Action

Bill Haluck and Steve Ubl of our Irvine office successfully defended the Orange County Sheriff's Department and two deputies sued for excessive force, battery and negligence by an 88 year old man.

 The action arose out of a dispute over the price charged for items at a local Ralphs Supermarket. Ralphs had previously settled out of the case. Plaintiff sought damages for a torn rotator cuff, bruises and abrasions claimed to have been suffered at the hands of the deputies. Following opening statements and the cross examination of the plaintiff, the plaintiff decided to dismiss the action against all remaining defendants.
