$20,000 Settlement by King County in Assault, False Imprisonment Claim

Washington State’s King County has settled an excessive force and false imprisonment claim for $20,000. The claim, brought by Bradley T. Nebinger, sought compensation for injuries incurred at the jail on March 4, 2006.

Nebinger claimed that he was assaulted and had extreme excessive force used on him by guards at the jail. The beating caused a close head injury, torn meniscus in his right knee, cervical strain and multiple facial contusions and abrasions. He was also illegally detained when guards delayed his release from the jail.

A claim for damages was filed with the King County Clerk of Council on March 30, 2007. Represented by Attorney John J. Politio, Nebinger accepted a settlement of $20,000 on November 21, 2007. See: In re Nebinger, King County Claim No. 41216.
