Civil Rights Violation
New York Daily News writer Stephen Rex Brown (October 23, 2014 edition) told the story of Jeff Deskovic and the incredible award he obtained. It was the largest verdict in U.S. history at $41.6 million. Mr. Deskovic was convicted of rape in 1991. In 2006, DNA led to the arrest and confession of the actual rapist and Deskovic’s name was cleared. This case represents an extreme Civil Rights violation. Most Abuse of Process, Malicious Prosecution, False Arrest or any other Civil Rights violation will rarely ever rise to this level of injustice. That is why Mr. Deskovic was awarded such an extraordinary amount of money.
