Harrison Police Dept. vindicated after string of lawsuits

After four years, the Harrison Police Department says it is feeling vindicated as the last of 13 lawsuits filed by disgruntled officers against the department was won at trial.

All 13 lawsuits that were filed were either thrown out, dismissed or won at trial.

The lawsuits were filed by attorney Jonathan Lovett on behalf of disgruntled officers and others against officers for various claims from civil-rights violations to unauthorized videotaping.

The town, however, did lose more than $500,000 defending itself against the lawsuits, money it says it can't get back.
