Police Officer is Shot and Killed by Fellow Officer –42 U.S.C. §1983 Claim for Violation of Fourth Amendment - $3.5 million Settlement. When a Lakewood, Colorado, police department violated numerous procedures during a SWAT incident, and a police officer shot and killed a fellow officer also working the scene, the deceased officer’s widow hired Murray Ogborn and Clayton Wire to file a lawsuit against the City of Lakewood police department in the United States District Court. In an extraordinarily challenging civil rights case, the attorneys at Ogborn Mihm represented the estate of the deceased police officer. The case was vigorously defended by multiple law firms. In the end, we were able to prove that the shooting officer violated the deceased officer’s civil rights by unreasonably ignored multiple indications that the deceased was a police officer and thus posed no threat. The case settled for $3.5 million before trial. Tamara Davies, as personal representative of the Estate of James Davies, v.
