Man Seeking $3.5 Million in Damages from the City of Milwaukee

After his case was dismissed, Eddie G. Gill wants the city of Milwaukee to pay $3.5 million in damages as a result of improper police interrogation. After three days of questioning while in police custody, Gill was charged of the shooting death of Jordin Crawley on Feb. 16, 2013. The case was dismissed on March 13, 2014, after Circuit Judge Stephanie Rothstein ruled his confession inadmissible. Gill was then able to go free after 13 months in jail.

Bruce Vielmetti of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel writes:

The sum is sought to compensate Gill for “the deprivation of his liberty, physical pain and suffering, emotional trauma, interference with familial relationships, violation of his right to privacy, seizure of his personal property, and deprivation of his civil and constitutional rights,” a notice of claim filed Wednesday says.
