$7,500 Settlement for Excessive Force

Washington State’s King County Jail has paid $7,500 to settle the excessive force claim of Sean T. Tandberg. While at the Jail on May 20, 2002, Tandberg was taken to the “hole” by guard “Robles.” At the time, Tandberg was on crutches. Robles “threw” him into the cell, “exacerbating” his pre-existing injuries and causing emotional distress.

Represented by Takwila attorney Donna Beasley, Tandberg settled the matter on May 22, 2006. The documents relative to this claim are available on PLN’s website. See: In re Tandberg, King County Claim No. 37017.
