Cliff Bidlingmaier Represented Man Shot By Trenton Police Officers

Carter filed a lawsuit for injuries he sustained after he was shot by Trenton Police officers in June of 2003. The trial court ruled in favor of the Trenton Police officers. Cliff Bidlingmaier represented the appellant, James Carter, on appeal from the Superior Court of New Jersey that was argued on March 16, 2010.

Carter was at home when a friend of his, Marion Kind, showed up and told him that he had just shot someone and did not expect to live much longer. Kind had, in his possession, a firearm which he reloaded while in the presence of Carter. He then left Carter’s property and proceeded into a dark alley. Carter followed Kind and called the police as he feared that Kind would harm himself or someone else. (more…)
