$ 1 MILLION FOR POLICE ASSAULT ON FREMANTLE ESPLANADE
Fremantle couple Robert Cunningham and Catherine Atoms have been awarded $ 1 million in damages by the WA District Court for an arrest made on the Esplanade and tasering by police in November 2008.
They claimed they had been falsely imprisoned and assaulted when they were tasered and handcuffed outside the Esplanade Hotel.
They had alleged the behaviour of the officers constituted battery and assault, false imprisonment and malicious prosecution.
Amazing that it took them eight years to get justice!
