Police were conducting an “operation” on Oxford St when one of them was accidentally hit by a car. Their emotions were perhaps understandably running high.
They set up a crime scene with police tape but then started to aggressively “move on” people who were not actually anywhere near the scene.
The police (about 6 of them) then over-reacted by assaulting our client and his brother. They then charged them with Assaulting Police and other offences.
We immediately subpoenaed CCTV from nearby venues. It clearly supported our client’s version of events.
We successfully had the charges dismissed in the Local Court with a costs order in our client’s favour.
We then commenced civil proceedings against the police and successfully settled the action in favour of our client with a damages payout.
"He's got a very good tactical mind and is good with strategy ... great advocacy and comes to grips with the evidence."
