Colorado Court of Appeals Unanimously Decides in Favor of FGMC Client

Congratulations to FGMC attorneys Danny Foster, Chip Schoneberger and Marcy Ongert for winning an important case against the City of Denver. Yesterday the Colorado Court of Appeals decided the City of Denver was incorrect in firing Denver Sheriff’s Deputy Matthew Carothers following a 2009 incident that the City believed exemplified excessive force and affirmed his reinstatement ordered by Denver Career Service Hearing Officer Bruce Plotkin. 

FGMC’s win marks the fourth time the City has failed to reverse Carothers’ reinstatement. Additionally, the Colorado Court of Appeals’ ruling in favor of Carothers follows favorable rulings by the Career Service Board and the Denver District Court. The City of Denver will be responsible for back wages and other possible costs.
