Manning Kass Team Has A Motion For Summary Judgment Granted And Featured In The Daily Journal

September 12, 2023

Manning Kass’s Governmental Entity Liability team continues its run of success, recently having a motion for summary judgment granted in its entirety.

The case revolved around an incident in 2019. The San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department (SBSD) responded to a 911 call from a neighbor reporting that a local male resident had fired several rounds into the neighbor’s trailer. Multiple shots had been heard from the resident’s address and there were reports that he had shot at a SBSD helicopter.

When SBSD arrived at the scene, the resident did not comply with multiple orders to surrender. He retreated into his garage, eventually returning with a gun and entering a stance where the defendants believed he would open fire. The defendants saw the resident fire one round from his gun and returned fire, dropping the resident onto his back.

Founding Partner and team Leader Eugene P. Ramirez and Los Angeles Partner Kayleigh A. Andersen lead the Manning Kass defense team.

The case was recently published in legal industry publication the Daily Journal, which you can read here (membership required).
