Added By FourthEstate - Sep 24, 2016 - Court and Legal


On August 24, 2016, Gerald and Royetta Ostipow, having never been charged or convicted of any crime related to drugs, filed a federal lawsuit (with the help of their attorneys Philip L. Ellison of Outside Legal Counsel PLC and Matthew E. Gronda) against Sheriff William L. Federspiel, his department, and a number of unnamed sheriff deputies who sold the Ostipow's property without a proper and final determination of forfeitability. The lawsuit seeks damages in excess of one million dollars in compensatory, nominal, treble, and punitive damages, together with attorney fees and costs.
