New York-Based Sanders Law Firm Files Claim for Good Samaritan Beaten by New York City Police Officers
Date:8/28/2008

Leading personal injury law firm files notice of claim against City of New York and New York City Police Department.

Mineola, NY (Lexis Nexis) August 28, 2008 -- http://thesandersfirm.com/attorney.asp?attorneyid=14 [Marc Grossman], senior partner of leading national personal injury law firm of Sanders, Sanders, Block, Woycik, Viener & Grossman, P.C. in Bronx, New York, today announced that his firm has filed a Notice of Claim against The City of New York and The New York City Police Department in connection with the alleged recent beating of a New York man.

The Notice of Claim, submitted to The City of New York, was filed on behalf of Cyle Perry-Osby as a result of the injuries he sustained when he was violently assaulted by two female New York City Police Officers in the http://www.wnbc.com/news/17232316/detail.html [highly publicized incident] of August 15, 2008. The filing of the Notice of Claim is a pre-requisite to filing a lawsuit against The City of New York.

According to Grossman, Mr. Osby was driving on 218th Street in the Bronx when he came upon the two police officers who appeared to be assaulting a motorist at the intersection of White Plains Road and 218th Street. The Notice of Claim alleges that when Mr. Osby questioned the officers as to what was happening, they were verbally abusive, sprayed him with mace, and struck him in the head and face. One of the officers then allegedly held a gun to Mr. Osby's face, causing him to fear for his life, before the officers finally left the scene. The Notice of Claim says that Mr. Osby was immediately treated at Our Lady of Mercy Medical Center for a severe head injury and will require continued medical attention.

"Our client was only trying to be a 'Good Samaritan' and assist a man he saw was in trouble," said Grossman. "He is with his family now, trying to recover, and is thankful that arrests have been made in this case."

Attorney Michael Villeck of the Sanders law firm commented, "It's a terrible injustice when people abuse their position of power. When those entrusted with preserving civility and protecting the public commit this type of horrendous act and cause serious injury to innocent civilians, the entire city suffers."

Sanders, Sanders, Block, Woycik, Viener & Grossman, P.C. has extensive experience handling litigation involving http://thesandersfirm.com/dir.asp?find=policebrutality [assaults], excessive force and violation of civil and constitutional rights. The firm has received broad media coverage over its recently filed product liability lawsuits against Pfizer, Inc., the manufacturer of the hugely popular Chantix smoking cessation drug; and for its role in the ground-breaking $4.85 billion Vioxx settlement against Merck & Co.

"It's been a very busy summer for the firm which, in a recent span of just http://thesandersfirm.com/news.asp#article2 [8 days], recovered 8 million dollars in damages for its clients, including a 5 million dollar product liability settlement," said Grossman.
