After jury finds officers lied, District of Columbia settles with NSB Client Donald Gates

A day after a federal jury found that District of Columbia police officers had fabricated evidence and hid exculpatory evidence during Donald Gates’s trial for a 1981 rape and murder, the government settled Mr. Gates’s claims for $16.65 million. Neufeld Scheck & Brustin will formally request an audit of old homicide cases investigated by the defendants, as well as an investigation into perjury by the officers during the past month’s trial.
