Skip to comments.Bank Media Honcho To File Multi Million Dollar Brutality Suit Against LAPD
Posted on 08/12/2012 6:05:17 AM PDT by RummyChick
A powerful honcho at Deutsche Bank is suing the LAPD and the City of L.A. for millions of dollars -- we're told up to $100 mil -- for allegedly being forced into a motel room by cops and then beaten to a pulp.
Brian Mulligan, the Managing Director and Vice Chairman of Media and Telecommunications for the Bank, claims on May 15, he was in the L.A. suburb of Highland Park -- near a marijuana dispensary -- when he was approached by 2 LAPD officers.
We're told Mulligan claims the cops walked up to him and asked why he was in the area, and then proceeded to search both him and his car. Mulligan says the officers found a large amount of cash in the car -- thousands of dollars -- and then put him in a police car and drove to a nearby motel.
We're told Mulligan says the cops told him to stay in the room until they returned. He claims he waited several hours, but the cops never came back. He says he felt he was being set up to be robbed or killed, so he made a run for it. As he ran out, he says cops were right there and began beating him mercilessly.
Mulligan says he was taken to a hospital, where doctors treated him for 15 fractures to the nasal area, a broken scapula, and severe facial laceration to a point where he "barely looked human."
Mulligan was booked for resisting arrest and interfering with law enforcement.
The L.A. County D.A. declined to prosecute Mulligan and referred the case to the City Attorney where a lesser charge could be filed. But all indications are the City Attorney won't file a criminal case either.
Sources tell us Mulligan will file a claim next week against the LAPD and the City of L.A. -- something he's required to do before filing a lawsuit. We're told the lawsuit will demand $100 million.
The LAPD tells TMZ ... cops were in the area looking for a suspect who was jimmying car doors, and Mulligan matched the description. The LAPD says when they approached Mulligan, he seemed to be under the influence of something, but they determined he was sober. Cops say Mulligan told them he was tired and needed to sleep, so they took him to the motel as a courtesy.
A few hours later, cops got another call from someone who said a man matching Mulligan's description was jimmying car doors near the motel. When they approached him he charged the cops so they took him down.
We're told the LAPD is conducting an internal investigation, which is standard in major injury cases.
LAPD decided to beat up the wrong dude
“Co-leadership in this highly attractive financing is Deutsche Banks endorsement and continuing support of an exceptionally strong management team led by two true industry experts, Gary and Roger, and the supportive leadership of an exceptional Board. The over-performance in the past year allowed for this improved financing, said Brian Mulligan, Vice Chairman, Deutsche Bank.”
They are going to pay
and check this out:
“Prior to that, Mr. Mulligan held various senior-level positions, including senior executive advisor with The Boston Consulting Group, Inc., chairman for Fox Television, Inc., chief financial officer of The Seagram Company Ltd., an entertainment and beverage company, co-chairman of Universal Pictures, Inc., executive vice president of operations at Universal Entertainment and executive vice president corporate development and strategy at MCA Inc., an entertainment and media conglomerate. Other Public Company Directorships: Mr. Mulligan served on the board of Napster, Inc. from March 2003 to October 2008 and was a director of Ascent Media Group, Inc., a predecessor of Ascent Media Group, LLC, our principal operating subsidiary (AMG), from December 2002 to September 2003.
So the question will be ..how big is the payout for crushing this man’s face.
Reading the comments that accompany the article it seems most posters automatically assume the police are guilty as charged. However this guy doesn’t look like he is “all there” and if you look at photos of bankers they are very careful about their appearance. Just go to the Deutche Bank website under “Management” and you can see what I mean. They are all very straight-laced. Now this dude looks downright weird and out of the parameters for his profession. His hair is wildly out of control and entirely too long for his face, and his tie isn’t even fixed properly. No “banker” would ever allow such a photo to circulate. Appearances can reveal a lot about a personality. And what the hell was he doing out so late in a depressed neighborhood anyway?
It's getting to the point in this country that you need a video recording of any interaction you have with any government officials. And the camera better be well hidden with offsite storage because otherwise the recording will "disappear".
He isn’t a “banker”
He is kind of amalgam. Notice he was the Chairman for Fox Television...but notice this:
News Corp. said Fox Television Chairman Brian Mulligan resigned for personal reasons. Mulligan will leave his job at the end of this month but will remain a consultant to the company, News Corp. said in a statement. Mulligan oversees Fox Television stations, Fox cable networks and advertising sales, finance and relations with affiliate stations at the Fox Television network. He resigned “to strike a better balance between my personal and professional life,” according to the statement.
Mulligan headed up Fox television in 2001 for 9 months.
Arrest people based on looks? Everyone would be arrested at some point in their life if based on appearance matter.
Brian C. Mulligan is digging in for the battle of his professional
life: He wants Barry Diller’s job.
Mulligan is the mastermind behind oil tycoon Marvin Davis’ $13-
billion bid for control of Vivendi Universal’s studios, theme parks,
cable channels and recording labels. Associates say that Mulligan
could take the operational reins now held by Diller if a deal is
He once served as co-chairman of Universal Studios and chief
financial officer of Seagram Co. Last year, after only nine months on
the job, Mulligan left under duress as chairman of News Corp.’s Fox
Television, where he oversaw cable channels, TV stations and Fox
Insiders say he was unable to fit into the cutthroat, entrepreneurial
culture that is News Corp.’s trademark. From the beginning,
associates say, he was seen as an easy mark because he was new to the
TV business. His underlings waged a virtual mutiny, refusing to
return his phone calls and challenging his authority, according to
This will be settled before it's even filed.
Whatever length he wears his hair, and whatever his reasons for being wherever, there is NO JUSTIFICATION for deliberately beating a man’s face until he is barely recognizable as human.
Even less can the Thugs-N-Blu justify such a savage beating when they outnumbered their victim by a wide margin. Oh, don’t forget to factor in the fact that the savages doing the beating were also wearing body armor, armed, and also probably carried tasers.
Only when such Urban Ferals wearing county uniforms are thrown into prison for decades will such abuses stop.
PS Were these cops black or Hispanic? If so, the racism aspect will raise the settlement price and the jail time, one may hope.
I don’t see his photo on the website. can you give me a link to it.
if you scroll down on this site you will see a banker type picture
For some reason, that sounds better in German.
