Former Deputy Sheriff Scott Milliman has lost his wrongful dismissal Federal case against the Sheriff’s Department when Keith Nygren was in charge.
Now three year’s into predecessor Bill Prim’s term, the case was dismissed on august 4th by Judge Frederick Kapala.
Here is the judge’s conclusion in his fifteen page opinion:
“For all the reasons stated above, defendants have shown, on the basis of the record evidence, that no genuine issues of material fact exist that would warrant a trial in this case. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 56(c); Matsushita Elec. Indus. Co. v. Zenith Radio Corp., 475 U.S. 574, 587 (1986) (“Where the record taken as a whole could not lead a rational trier of fact to find for the non-moving party, there is no genuine issue for trial.”).
“Thus, defendants’ motion for summary judgment is granted. This case is closed.”
