Quotes

"The court recognizes that the case has taken an inordinate length of time and factored that into the earlier calculations," Story wrote. "But the court does not find defendant unjustifiably caused delay in the case. For example, the defense succeeded on significant issues raised in the interlocutory appeal. Thus, the decision to appeal was clearly not unjustified. Plaintiff also faults defendant for delay based on his reliance on faulty evidence. However, regardless of the evidence with which plaintiff takes issue, defendant has asserted and likely will continue to assert an immunity defense that turns on close factual issues that defendant was not unjustified in wanting to have a jury pass upon. Therefore, the court concludes that an adjustment based on delay is not warranted."
"It is unconscionable to ask that [Abigail Ayers] wait whatever time is required for an appeal before she can collect her judgment without any assurance that the judgment will, in fact, be collectible" Story wrote

...be accomplished when citizens partner with the policepolice department to rid their communities of drugs and drug-related problems," Jarrell said. "We are extremely proud of the assistance our citizens provide us in helping rid their communities of this criminal activity."
