That is going to REALLY piss-off the civil trial jury.
Albuquerque (I know it’s away from ABQ but still) has a monster problem on their hands.
No doubt at all.
If he didn’t sign a consent to treatment, they will have a problem with billing him. If he did, then the hospital can do so. I saw in the article he protested each procedure, so I guess he never signed.
But yes, it will piss off the jury. This sounds like a case where the plaintiff’s attorney can the tell opposing counsel to get out the checkbook and he’ll tell them when to stop writing the zeroes.
Hospitals routinely bill criminal suspects for police-ordered procedures, like blood draws in DUI cases. In no way should a criminal suspect be required to pay these costs.
Next thing you know your family will be charged for the bullet they put through your head, just like China.
Unless the civil trial jury is made up of the same Hispanics that make up the police force and hospital staff.
Wrong county for warrant;expired warrant;no probable cause-so many things wrong.
this guy should win a buttload of lawsuit money and run for mayor and then fire the all the cops involved and cut their budget.
I live in the area and told my hubby if I was called for jury on this one all I would need to know is how much money the man could be awarded. We know quite a few LEO here but don’t know any of the LEO involved in this, I am amazed this happened around here- really.
I read an article this morning that said there was another man that got the same treatment from the same LEO agencies and same hospital...crazy- just can’t imagine the stupidity of it all.
