Police Brutality Florida

Mr. Sharpe is a specialist in Section 1983 United States Code Police/Municipal Liability Litigation in State and Federal Courts. Civil Rights prosecution has included multiple recoveries in excess of a million dollars against the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office, City of West Palm Beach Police Department, City of Lake Worth Police Department and the Riviera Beach Police Department.

A reflection of this firm’s commitment to litigate serious personal injury and death cases is demonstrated by the successful litigation of intentional torts committed by police officers, which constitutes only a fraction of the law firm’s practice.

Prior Title U.S. Code Section 1983 Federal Claims litigation includes but is not limited to:

  • Jewett v. City of West Palm Beach Police Department (in custody police beating death)
  • Dawson v. Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office (police shooting/fatality)
  • Moradian v. City of Lake Worth Police Department (police shooting resulting in paralysis)
  • Lamore v. City of Riviera Beach Police Department (jury verdict determination of municipal liability)
  • Mueller v. Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office (police beating injuries, conspiracy retaliation claims involving PBSO Internal Affairs Division)
