BALLOU v. LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENT, No. 2:12-cv-06324-ODW(JCGx) (C.D. California, September 25, 2012)
LAPD denied qi in this nice, brief little “mistaken” identity case. Plaintiff had the same name as the suspect, but police had plenty of reason to realize that they had arrested the wrong person. Police just didn’t care and now the judge has called them on that callousness.
