A lawsuit against the Los Angeles Police Department by an umpire alleging false arrest has been dismissed. A U.S. District Court judge dismissed the lawsuit which alleged that the plaintiff had been falsely arrested and wrongfully accused of beating her husband to death with a coffee cup. The plaintiff was arrested as she was on her way to officiate a tennis game at the U.S. Open in New York and the lawsuit alleged that the arrest caused her “public humiliation.” The lawsuit was filed after criminal charges against the plaintiff were dropped, following an investigation that revealed a crime was not committed in the man’s death. According to the plaintiff’s attorney on Friday, they will be appealing the lawsuit’s dismissal.
