    As a slight clarification on the minor derailment of this thread in regards to the colors of a yield sign.

    The ONLY difference between a yellow yield sign and a red and white yield sign is age.

    In 1974 the manual on uniform traffic control devices changed the color of the yield sign from yellow to white with red letters and a broad red boarder.

    They BOTH mean exactly the same thing.

    Does your attorney know (and sanction) you discussing the case here like this?

    And what state are you in that allows drinking while CCWing?

    I'm curious about the outcome of the criminal charges(DUI, Possession of a firearm while intoxicated)? Were you found guilty? Innocent? Not charged?

    I only ask because I've heard of a few people that were trying to file suits for wrong doing, but they couldn't find a lawyer that would represent them because they were found guilty of the criminal charges. If your criminal charges were thrown out of court then maybe the judge determined that the "evidence" you submitted was enough to cast some blame on the police. Idk?

    My thoughts exactly. Nothing to be gained and everything to lose.

    Sounds like both. Internal inv. First And now civil suit/litig. The VAST MAJORITY of people go thru life and are never involved in such incidents. He being involved in two makes me want to know more of the facts on both sides. However, i'd feel pretty comfortable if I was a betting man.

    Okay, I'm confused. It was at a controlled intersection, yet you were turning through a Yield sign. Is that right?

    I cannot imagine an attorney going forward with, what in my opinion is a frivolous and asinine claim, and definitely not on a contingency basis. I have reason to suspect that if, and that is a big if, an attorney is giving him this line of BS, the attorney is charging by the hour for the criminal matter and using this BS as a means to charge more so as to “preserve and develop” the potential civil litigation.

    I do not know if the jurisdiction where the matter occurred is one where the loser pays the prevailing party’s litigation costs and attorney’s fees, but a reasonable person should be concerned about Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Rule 11 and similar state rules require that an attorney perform a due diligence investigation concerning the factual basis for any claim or defense. Because such a defense or claim wastes the court's and the other parties' time, resources and legal fees, sanctions may be imposed by a court upon the party or the lawyer who presents the frivolous defense or claim. The law firm may also be sanctioned, or even held in contempt.

    I am disgusted and embarrassed by anyone in the legal profession that encourages, in any way whatsoever, this kind of action.

    I'm not seeing the "civil rights violation".......:upeyes:

    I AM seeing a lot of ignorance of the law really is, and a lot of chest beating "I'll show those guys, I got me a lawyer" bluster.....:rofl:

    I am betting that either (A) the city/county will take this all the way, and the OP will lose, or (B) the city/county's insurance carrier will give him and his lawyer $3,000 to go away, so they can save their own attorney's fees in defending it....and that's not a win, that just means it wasn't worth their time to defend it, so they will throw a little money at the nusiance to make it go away.:whistling:

    I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree.. as I got nothing out of the original post that even remotely suggested his rights were violated.

    So the lights controlled the intersection, but not the right turn lane?

    Was there a merge lane from the ramp onto the street into street traffic?

    Go figure. Someone getting upset about being pulled over for a moving violation.

    Drinking.
    Loaded gun.
    Moving violation.

    Hope the OP has a ton of money to spend on lawyers. I don't think he's going to see dollar one if this ever goes to trial.

    With so many threads these days about alleged inept/corrupt cops, possibly GT could start a new sub-forum. They could call it Citizens On Patrol, COPS! HAHAHAAHAH

    Did you go to the station house to file a complaint? Did they offer a Hurt Feelings Report for you to complete?

    I am still waiting to hear of the black marks previously posted about concerning the earlier po-lice interaction.
