DSB was successful in federal court, in the Eastern District of New York, in obtaining summary judgment on all claims on behalf of a Town on Long Island’s east end and its employees in an action brought by a plaintiff pursuant to 42 U.S.C. §1983 alleging several constitutional violations.  The federal District Judge adopted the report and recommendation of the federal Magistrate Judge in rejecting plaintiff’s claims for false arrest, malicious prosecution, and Monell liability, as well as several state law claims, arising from plaintiff’s arrest and prosecution for lewd conduct committed at the Town’s golf course.   The complaint against the Town and its employees was dismissed in its entirety.
