Firm Achieves Dismissal in Federal Court

Leave a comment

The firm recently achieved victory in federal court. In B.R. by Rogers v. Borough of Point Pleasant, the plaintiffs sued alleging various constitutional claims against the municipality and several of its employees.  Christopher J. Dasti, representing Point Pleasant Borough filed and argued a motion for summary judgment in United States District Court for the District of New Jersey.

With respect to the plaintiffs’ failure to train/supervise claim against the Borough, the court found that the plaintiffs failed to present evidence that the Borough acted with deliberate indifference to the known or obvious consequences of its acts or its failure to act. Even if the plaintiffs had presented evidence of deliberate indifference, the plaintiffs did not demonstrate a constitutional injury. The court granted the motion for summary judgment and dismissed the plaintiffs’ complaint with prejudice.
