Spesia & Taylor attorney Michael Stiff recently obtained complete dismissal of a Section 1983 Civil Rights claim brought against a police officer for one of the firm’s governmental clients. The dismissal came following months of briefs and hearings as to why the pro se plaintiff should not be sanctioned for failing to show for his deposition. Following the imposition of monetary sanctions, the United States District Court Magistrate Judge dismissed the complaint with prejudice. The plaintiff appealed the Magistrate Judge’s decision (twice) to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Both appeals were ultimately dismissed by the court due to the plaintiff failing to comply with appropriate procedures.
