Here's a case of excessive force where both a jury and now the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sided with Ken Rogers when he was attacked by a police dog and four Kennewick police officers while sleeping in the backyard of his family's house in Kennewick.  The jury verdict for permanent injuries sustained to his hand, back, neck and face was $1.5 million.

He was bitten by the police dog after it followed a wrong scent while looking for someone else who committed a minor traffic violation - riding a Moped without a helmet or headlight.  Apparently, the four officers decided to join in and beat him as well.  In this case, the injured person was an innocent bystander and happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

At the Andrew Kim Law Firm, PLLC, we pursue claims against police dogs and police officers who use excessive force and violate your constitutional rights.  If you need to speak with an experienced Seattle, Bellevue, Tacoma dog bite attorney, you can call us at 1-800-636-3676.
