Bronx Man Sues For Eye Shot and Taser Wants Officers and NYC on Trial at Same Time

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial book - NY Mag

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 3 – Wilson Galarza, a man diagnosed with bi-polar and post-traumatic stress disorders, had the police called on him on March 12, 2017 in his apartment at 1635 East 174th Street in The Bronx. In a short period of time, he was hit with a taser, and shot in the eye. He sued.

   On November 28, 2022, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Katharine H. Parker held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

  There was talk of Monnell and of bifurcation. Plaintiff's counsel said he did not favor a trial against the individual officers happening before and separate from a trial against the City. A jury might in the first instance think the City was more to blame, then the opposite in the second trial. 

 Judge Parker ordered that Plaintiff's expert report on the extend of eye damage is due by January 18. The next conference is set for January 26 at 2:30 pm.

The case is Galarza v. City of New York et al., 19-cv-10898 (Kaplan / Parker)
