M.D.Fla.: Police dog attack on wrong person not promptly called off was excessive

The officer had reasonable suspicion to frisk three men before they fled him. Releasing a police dog was not unreasonable. The dog’s attack of a 40ish woman, however, was not seen to be reasonable, and the dog was not promptly called off by the officer. That states a claim. Hope v. Taylor, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 33281 (M.D. Fla. Feb. 23, 2021).

Dockless scooter rental in Los Angeles has GPS tracking information on the scooters, but it is intentionally anonymous and can’t be linked to users. Therefore, Jones and Carpenter don’t apply. Sanchez v. Los Angeles DOT, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 34711 (C.D. Cal. Feb. 23, 2021).
