Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly

Serving as a Special Assistant Attorney Generals for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Attorneys at D’Ambrosio Brown obtained a complete dismissal of an inmate’s civil rights claims against the Plymouth County Sheriff and the Plymouth County Correctional Facility. The inmate filed a multi-count complaint alleging that he was physically disabled and sustained serious injuries as a result of excessive force, improper handcuffing, and defective seating conditions in a vehicle while being transported from a county correctional facility to court appearances. The Court agreed with D’Ambrosio Brown LLP’s arguments and dismissed all claims without any depositions or discovery being completed. The Court decision is published at Thomas Stefanik v. Joseph D. McDonald, 2010 Super. LEXIS 343 (2010).
