Q&H Wins Major Victory in Wrongful Conviction Case Defense
Congratulations to Querrey & Harrow Shareholder Larry Kowalczyk and associates Megan Monaghan and Matt Dixon on obtaining summary judgment for a Detective and their municipality client in a serious civil rights case where plaintiff was incarcerated just under two years.
On March 29, 2018, Federal District Court Judge Leinenweber issued his Memorandum Opinion and Order granting summary judgment on all claims in the matter of Abarca v. City 16 C 2494. Plaintiff, a primarily Spanish speaker, claimed he did not make a knowing waiver of his Miranda rights and was otherwise coerced into signing a statement in English admitting his guilt. At his criminal trial, he was found not guilty of criminal sexual abuse. Judge Leinenweber held that plaintiff indeed had made a voluntary waiver of Miranda and that there was no coercion as a matter of law, and entered judgment for the Defendants.Nike EPIC React FlyknitRunning sport media | nike mercurial superfly green size 7 shoes europe Magic Mushroom , Where To Buy , DH7650-600 , Ietp
