Judge Dismisses Lawsuit Against Denver Police
DENVER (AP) – A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed by a woman who alleged she was illegally stopped and falsely arrested by Denver police in 2008.
U.S. District Court Judge Robert Blackburn on Thursday dismissed Deneen Gammons’ claims against the city and county of Denver, Police Chief Gerald Whitman and four officers. The judge asked her to prove why her claims against unnamed Denver police shouldn’t also be dismissed.
Blackburn’s ruling says there was probable cause to arrest Gammons. It also says the statute of limitations bars some of her claims and that Gammons hadn’t presented enough evidence to support other allegations.
