    I think 40k is pretty meager considering the crap the city and the cops put him through. Sounds as if he is true to his word that he's just about making the city say sorry and to pay his legal fees. Lots of people would go for six or seven figures.

    I agree.

    Same with Jeff's case in Warren. As a tax payer in Warren i'm glad he didn't go for the big bucks, but as a gun owner I wish he would have.

    If that were me, the amount would be listed as 100 million.

    How many times have we heard of cops joking about someone's rights.

    Too many have no respect for them and these rights violating cops all across this nation need to be taught a lesson.

    WE ARE NOT CRIMINALS! Don't fricken treat us like criminals.

    You (cops) don't want to be lumped into the group of bad apples, THEN DON'T LUMP US INTO GROUP WITH THE CRIMINALS!

    Excellent! Citizens being willing to press civil litigation over rights violations helps to keep abusive government in check.

    Wishing you all the best, Sean! Take 'em to the cleaners. They've earned it.

    Hello Michigan. I am in a similar suit with the city of bellingham in Washington State. I was victim #3. The first incident with LEOs was dropped. The second was settled out of court for a nominal amount of US$1500. It did not stop the local LEOs from harassing open carriers. I found out that the city does not pay out of taxpayer money. The surrounding cities have grouped together and pool their monies for lawsuit purposes.

    "Knowledge is knowing the Fire will burn..........Wisdom is remembering the Blister!"

    I have found that a "nominal amount" is not effective as a deterrent. My city has the Knowledge that OC is legal and is not going away. My city will remember the Blister this time.
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    The end result should be.

    1. Legal fees

    2. An appology (Public by the Chief and offending officers)

    3. Enough money to get a new carry piece.

    4. TRAINING FOR ALL LEO ABOUT OPEN CARRY.

    They disparaged his reputation. There should be enough in there to compensate him for that also. Maybe a year or two of college.

    FYI, so far as I can see, this thread has to do with a lawsuit that could have affected all open carriers. So far as I'm concerned, it's on topic. However, be aware other opinions may vary.

    He would likely need to show a loss of income for slander/libel (if its even a possible cause of action) but he has none to speak of ...

    I think he should get the cops guns for the time period they kept his ...

    Question

    http://www.theoaklandpress.com/artic...a963291362.txt

    Here you can see the Lt. who let this whole "injustice" take place. I attended the trial and it was truly heart breaking to see these sworn officers being jovial about violating a honest citizens rights while the court was in recess. They even went as far to joke about the pay they receive for appearing in court. Makes one wonder if some bad apples don't just sling spaghetti charges at anyone that annoys them to get an "easy paid day(s) in court"?
