Bullman said his client is thankful a settlement was reached.
“He thought it was just one of those circumstances where he was going to have to put up with being abused by police and nothing was done,” Bullman said in a telephone interview Thursday.
This is the fourth time Laskowski has been sued for similar allegations. In July 2016, Dunwoody police settled with three people for a combined $177,000. Bullman also represented the clients in those cases, each questioning searches and the use of police dogs during traffic stops, the AJC previously reported.
No one was arrested in any of the incidents, Bullman said.
“It’s an issue of principle because no one went to jail,” he said.
