Brian Mulligan, Deutsche Bank Exec, Files $50 Million Police Brutality Claim In Bizarre Bath Salts Episode
by Wall Street Job Report on August 29, 2012
A senior executive at Deutsche Bank has filed a $50 million claim against the city of Los Angeles, alleging he was beaten by two officers during a bizarre incident after they dropped him off at a motel where they ordered him to stay until the following morning.
Brian Mulligan, 53, filed the claim, a precursor to a lawsuit, earlier this month, saying his injuries included a broken nose and shoulder. He said he suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and his medical bill could reach $1 million because of his encounter with police.
“I think their actions were excessive,” Mulligan’s attorney, J. Michael Flanagan, said of the officers Monday. “I don’t know why they did what they did, but as soon as we file a lawsuit, we can get depositions and find out what they did.”
Police arrested Mulligan for investigation of resisting arrest, but county prosecutors declined to file charges. A declination letter from prosecutors said Mulligan had been “acting crazy” and was injured after he swung and lunged at officers who restrained him.
