The City of Tukwila has paid an MHB client $100,000 plus attorney’s fees to resolve a federal civil rights case. The lawsuit alleged that two Tukwila officers investigating the client for trespassing tased him, punched him six times in the head, then released a police dog that bit the client in the legs while a third officer put him in handcuffs.
The case was handled by MHB lawyers David Whedbee, Joe Shaeffer, and Tiffany Cartwright.
