Banking Exec Planning Multi-Million Dollar Lawsuit Against LAPD Northeast

The lawsuit is expected to be officially filed this week, according to TMZ.

The Media Director for one of the world's largest banks alleges that he was brutally beaten by LAPD Northeast Division Officers in May and is planning to sue the both the department and the city of Los Angeles for up to $100 million, TMZ.com reports. 

According to TMZ, Brian Mulligan, Managing Director and Vice Chairman of Media and Telecommunications for Deutsche Bank, was taken in custody by officers near a medical marijuana dispensary in Highland Park because he matched the description of a man who was attempting to break into cars in the area.

TMZ's report goes on to state that Mulligan was taken to a nearby hotel where he was left alone and told to wait for officers until they returned. After several hours of waiting, Mulligan attempted to leave the hotel. The report states that Mulligan was met by officers during his attempt to leave and was "beat[en] mercilessly."

From TMZ:

Mulligan says he was taken to a hospital, where doctors treated him for 15 fractures to the nasal area, a broken scapula, and severe facial lacerations to a point where he "barely looked human."

A few hours later, another suspect matching Mulligan's description was arrested in Highland Park while trying to pry open a car door. The Los Angeles County District Attorney declined to file any charges against Mulligan, who was arrested by LAPD on charges of resisting arrest and interfering with law enforcement.

Highland Park-Mount Washington Patch spoke to LAPD Northeast Captain Brian Pratt, who said he was aware of the incident. Pratt said Mulligan was arrested for "resisting an officer" and that "minor force was used in arresting him." He declined to comment further without first reading over the police report.

LAPD's Northeast Division Detectives have systematically secured convictions against innocent people as far back as 1997. We recently received information from a man that has been in prison since 1997 that heard about THE MATTHEW TURNER case and contacted us with information that the Detectives that had Matthew convicted are also responsible and DID THE SAME THING TO HIM BACK IN 1997. How many more are out there that have suffered because of these Detectives. WE NEED YOU TO STAND WITH US. IF YOU HAVE NOT SIGNED OUR ONLINE PETITION , PLEASE TAKE A FEW MINUTES TO SIGN IT. YOU ONLY NEED TO SIGN IT ONCE. PLEASE RALLY WITH US AND HAVE ALL THOSE AROUND YOU SIGN IT ALSO. THANK YOU. PLEASE FOLLOW THE LINKS TO LEARN MORE.

Wow..how could anybody associate any other incident with gang members and their uncivilized lifestyle. Please put a little more thought into you're comparisons before submitting them.

I agree flygirl. Gang members are in the same category as racists and child molestors. Scum. They live to make life miserable for others.

Wayne, your comment is laughable. You will have us believe that gang members are the "suffering" victims. LOL Is this actually a joke and I'm slow? Is Matthew Turner a gang member? If so, I doubt very much that your documentary will get much support. I actually think that the police may be getting more support after your documentary. Sorry, for the bad news.
