Ledea v. Metro-Dade County Police Department et al (13-CV-23117-UU)

The plaintiff is suing police officers alleging excessive use of force during his arrest on two separate occasions. He claims that the two instances are somehow linked because he has been allegedly had difficulties with Miami police and Miami-Dade police. In December 2009 he was arrested during a prostitution sting and alleges that the officers beat him. In November 2010 he was arrested for possession of cocaine, aggravated fleeing and resisting arrest. The defendants in the November 2010 incident filed a motion to dismiss which it has been recommended be denied.  The defendants in the 2009 incident have not been served although service is now outstanding since they have been properly identified as City of Miami officers.  If interested, please contact: FLSD_ProBono@flsd.uscourts.gov.
