Richard M. Mahon secures jury verdict in Manhattan Federal Court
Richard M. Mahon, Senior Partner, was successful in securing a jury verdict in Manhattan Federal Court in favor of the Defendants after a three-day jury trial. Three Muslim inmates sued the County and its Jail Chaplain alleging violation of their First, Fifth, Eighth and Fourteenth Amendment Rights, claiming infringement of their rights of religious freedom and expression within the Rockland County Jail. The County and the Jail Chaplain steadfastly maintained that no discrimination nor infringement of Constitutional rights had occurred. The Jury agreed and returned a no-cause defense verdict on all claims.
