Federal Court findings for Davidson vs. Opelika

City of Opelika Press Release regarding 'Davidson vs. Opelika'

 

 

On  March 6, 2014 Michael Davidson was shot by Opelika Police Officer  Phillip Hancock after he exited his vehicle alongside U.S. Highway I-85.  Davidson subsequently sued Officer Phillip Hancock, Opelika Chief of  Police John McEachern and the City of Opelika for claims arising from  the shooting. 

 

The City, the Chief of Police and its  officer have always denied any wrongdoing. This case has now been  analyzed by two federal courts – the U.S. District Court for the Middle  District of Alabama and the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. The  judges have unanimously determined after a review of the evidence, which  includes the dash cam video, there was no wrongdoing on behalf of the  City, the Chief, or the involved officer. In reaching their respective  decisions, these Federal Courts reviewed all of the evidence. Their  opinions are clearly supported by all evidence. Attached are copies of  the opinions issued by the two Federal Courts which have considered this  matter.
