About This Course
This program covers the middle steps in successful litigation of a high-frequency police liability case based on a hypothetical fact pattern, whether you are for the plaintiff or the defense. The first program involved case selection, representation and initial pleadings. The program after this one will cover pre-trial, trial and post-trial from the plaintiff’s and defense perspective. In this practical program, you will learn what files law enforcement creates, where they are kept, which ones to ask for and how the defense can protect them, a checklist of discovery the defense should obtain from the plaintiff, the top fifteen evidentiary issues for trial, how to present or limit the opinions of police practices experts, and the top ten motions for the plaintiff or defense to file, especially the defense motion for summary judgment.
