Jury Awards $28 Million In Wrongful Death Case Against Police Officers

A federal jury in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, awarded $28 million to the family of a 12 year old boy who was shot by police on Christmas Eve in 2002. The boy was unarmed at the time he was killed. After the boy’s death, his family filed a wrongful death claim against Troopers Samuel Nassan and Juan Curry alleging that they acted intentionally. Apparently, the jury agreed. The jury deliberated for four days before rendering their $28 dollar verdict.
