Hah. That's a funny take on my post, though that's not what I had intended.Usually, LA County farms out its PI/civil rights work to insurance defense lawyers. These lawyers are good enough when defending cops, because any lawyer with a pulse can represent a police officer being sued for a rights violation, since judges don't like those cases going to tria; and when they do go to trial, don't like finding them liable.But when it's a PD being sued, the bias in favor of the government goes down the tubes. Thus, the County needed to hire actual trial lawyers, instead of the usual civil litigators.I see the reason for the mix-up, though.
