Federal Judge Orders Denver Officials to Cut the Bull Shit

The Denver Post is reporting that U.S. Senior Federal Judge Kane, made a ruling yesterday ordering the City of Denver to produce every excessive-force complaint filed against every single Denver police officer or sheriff’s deputy in the past eight years, as well as all documents showing what the departments did with those complaints and whether they imposed any discipline on the officers involved. The city must also turn over any internal studies done on use of force by police officers.

The ruling comes in the wake of a lawsuit filed concerning excessive force.  Denver City Attorney’s have failed to provide the plaintiff’s attorney’s with the necessary discovery and as a result Judge Kane made this ruling.  Qusair Mohamedbhai told the post that, “No judge has ever compelled Denver to produce this amount of discovery related to its officers’ use of force.”

Now may be the perfect time to file a CORA request, citing Judge Kane’s ruling to get these documents in public hands.
