In Sedgwick County District Court against a cardiac electrophysiologist who negligently performed an electrophysiology study and ablation resulting in complete heart block and pacemaker dependency for our client.
This important class action case involved the wrongful incarceration of over 40,000 Wichita residents for failing to pay traffic and misdemeanor fines. By imprisoning these individuals without a hearing, the City violated their due process rights under both the United States and Kansas Constitutions. The City was utilizing these methods in an effort to increase sagging city revenues. Mr. Leatherman and Mr. White worked diligently to ensure that this abusive practice was stopped and that those who were unlawfully imprisoned were fairly compensated. In total, the case was settled for over $11,000,000.
