Denver police officers investigated by FBI for civ…  

A pair of Denver police officers who physically assaulted a 19-year-old are now being investigated for civil rights violations.The two police stopped Alex Landau for a traffic violation just after midnight on January 15, 2009, and attempted to search his trunk. When the man objected, the police began beating and mocking him. The traffic violation charges against Landau were dropped after he filed a lawsuit alleging the beating left him with brain damage. It was settled out of court for nearly $800,000.Neither officer faced state charges in the case, but both were later separately fired in different excessive force cases. One of them has since been reinstated to a desk job. If the FBI finds that they violated the young man's civil rights, they may face further punishment.If you have been hurt due to the dangerous behavior of someone else, contact the personal injury lawyers of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., at (303) 423-1770.
