Click below to read and download the brief we filed today in the matter of Grantham et al. v. City of Lakeland, et al. I, along with my co-counsel Trent Coggins of Valdosta, represent Robbie Grantham and Kevin Trolinger, two Chiefs of Police who were terminated after refusing demands by Lakeland Mayor Bill Darsey to commit a number of unlawful acts, including arresting citizens without probable cause. We hope to take this matter to a jury trial sometime in 2012.
In the brief, we’ve highlighted some of the most important testimony that came out through the discovery process. For many who have been interested in the case, this may be the first chance to see what has been going on in the legal process.
Below is video of some news coverage of the case, and a promotional video for Lakeland, featuring Mayor Darsey.
