$10 Million Settlement in Personal Injury Case

A settlement of $10 million has been made in a personal injury case against King County of Tacoma, Washington. The family of Christopher Sean Harris set out on this lawsuit when he was allegedly pushed into a concrete wall by a sheriff’s deputy. Harris was allegedly wrongly identified by a witness who was a suspect in a nearby bar brawl while walking through Seattle on the night of May 9. Harris then reportedly led King County deputies on a foot chase before being stopped and allegedly pushed into a wall by one of the officers. Testimony at the civil trial revealed that deputies were wearing black tactical uniforms at the time of the chase. Harris' attorney said he believes Harris did not realize the men were officers. According to the news source, Harris suffered brain damage and has required round-the-clock care since the 2009 incident and will require long term care for the rest of his life.
