NSB client Jamal Trulove awarded $10 million in damages, the largest-ever jury verdict against the SFPD

On April 6, 2018, after a month-long trial, a federal jury in Oakland, California awarded $10 million in damages to NSB client Jamal Trulove, who spent six years in prison after being wrongfully convicted of murder. The jury based its damages award on its determination that two San Francisco Police Department detectives had withheld favorable evidence and fabricated evidence against Mr. Trulove.

Mr. Trulove is represented by NSB partners Nick Brustin and Anna Benvenutti Hoffmann, and fellow Meghna Philip, along with co-counsel Alex Reisman and Kate Chatfield.
