Union College Student Files Police Brutality Lawsuit

Schenectady – The E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy law firm recently filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of a former Union College student alleging that city police violated his civil rights by brutalizing and falsely arresting him at an off-campus celebration last year for the school’s hockey national championship. The civil action also contends that the victim, Broderick Shea, was repeatedly denied a phone call while being held in police custody for nearly six hours after being booked for criminal charges. E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy attorney James Knox will represent Mr. Shea throughout the legal process.  For additional information, please click on the links below.
