February 20, 2020
Attorney Christopher M. Gallagher, an attorney in TT&H’s Philadelphia office, recently won the dismissal of a federal civil rights lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The Plaintiff had brought the action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, alleging that the Defendants violated his rights under the 4th and 14th Amendments by unreasonably searching him without probable cause, leading to confinement and a false arrest. Dismissing the Plaintiff’s action with prejudice, the Court agreed with Attorney Gallagher that the Plaintiff failed to establish that his constitutional rights were violated. Law clerk and incoming associate, Matt Gerarde, contributed to the Motion to dismiss.
