Mitzy Galis-Menendez defeated a claim of excessive force and violation of civil rights filed against a Paterson Police Officer in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey.  Ms. Galis-Menendez, together with Kirstin Bohn, successfully argued in a Motion for Summary Judgment that the officer was entitled to qualified immunity, which means that he acted reasonably and lawfully under the circumstances.  The Court agreed and dismissed the Complaint with prejudice.
