Dorris v. City of Urbana, et. al.

July 7, 2016

Two sisters accused City of Urbana police officers of false arrest and use of excessive force.  Officers used mace on one sister and straight-arm takedown tactics on the other sister, who was recovering from a recent brain surgery.  Federal jury returned a verdict in favor of the officers.  The officers were represented by Mike Bersani and Urbana City Attorney Ronald O’Neal. Dorris v.
