The Stritmatter Firm’s Police Brutality Cases

Our civil rights attorneys are passionate about equal rights and protection for everyone. Our recent police brutality cases include the following:

Currently representing over 50 peaceful Black Lives Matter protesters in their civil rights lawsuits against the City of Seattle, King County, and the State of Washington.

$5,900,000.00 recovery for the family of Enosa Strickland Jr. Our team sued the involved officer and the City of Auburn for this tragic and unnecessary taking of life. After drunkenly talking back to the officers, the killer officer chose to assault Enosa and took him to the ground with MMA moves; both officers piled on. For reasons still unknown, the killer chose to shoot Enosa in the back of the head while Enosa was face

down on the ground while both officers were still straddling him. Our team showed that the claimed “justification” that Enosa pulled a dagger (that was illegal and in violation of Auburn PD policy) from the shooter’s vest was not physically possible and was simply a trumped-up excuse for the unlawful taking of a life. The officer involved never had to explain as he refused to answer questions under oath claiming 5th Amendment privilege.

$3,500,000 settlement for the Estate of Charleena Lyles. Our team fought for four years, ultimately successfully appealing the case to the Court of Appeals, creating new law in our state – making the Defendant bear the burden of proof of specific intent to commit a felony.
