Firm Recovers Record $8m from Baltimore City for the Gun Trace Task Force Scandal
After years of successful litigation in state and federal court, Silverman Thompson is pleased to announced that it has recovered $8m for two men who both went to federal prison for drugs that were planted in their vehicle in 2010. That amount eclipsed the settlement paid to the family of Freddie Gray in 2015. The corrupt police officers were members of Baltimore's infamous Gun Trace Task Force (GTTF). Lead attorney on this matter for the firm was Steven D. Silverman. Silverman led a team that revered both men's federal convictions and help establish new precedent for scope of employment and vicarious liability in cases of this type.
