Attorney Files $50 Million Lawsuit Against State, MSP Trooper [Video]

Attorney Geoffrey Fieger is filing a $50 million lawsuit against the State of Michigan and a Michigan State Police Trooper. The lawsuit is a result of a police chase that took place on July 3rd in Flint and left one person dead and two others severely injured. The trooper – stationed at the MSP’s Flint post – tried to pull over a suspect’s car. The suspect refused and ran a stop sign. Investigators say the trooper pursued the vehicle and crashed into another vehicle that was traveling through the intersection. The suspect got away, but there were three people in the vehicle the trooper crashed into. One died and the two others were injured. The trooper and a civilian ride-along were treated for non-life threatening injuries.

According to WNEM, a press release from Fieger says the trooper was traveling through the intersection at a high rate of speed, without lights and sirens, and was pursuing the suspect for a minor traffic infraction. Fieger said “it is well known that police take the public’s lives into their hands when they engage in unnecessary and inappropriately conducted police chases. In this case it is also terrible that the state police officer had a family tag-along in his car. Apparently he was trying to impress the drive-along.”
