Rule 11 Letter Leads to Dismissal

In Moseley v. Village of Anitoch, the plaintiff alleged in his complaint that the defendant falsely arrested him, committed battery and assault, subjected him to malicious prosecution, and would be liable under other state law theories. After a review of the officer’s squad car video, Amanda Zdarsky under the supervision of Matthew Clark sent a Rule 11 letter with a copy of the video tape. Shortly thereafter, Plaintiff dismissed his complaint in the Northern District of Illinois court.
