John Fleming defended a case involving multiple police departments that were part of a joint task force for drug crime investigations and arrests. A “sting operation” was organized by one police officer, and numerous police employees, from various municipalities, participated in the entry into the apartment of the alleged crime perpetrator, and arrest of the alleged perpetrator. Ultimately, it turned out that the wrong apartment number was used and entered, no charges were filed against the perpetrator (even though drugs were found in the apartment). A settlement conference resulted in a small settlement, with contributions from several defendant police departments.
