Florio Kenny Raval, LLP Successfully Defends Municipal Prosecutor

Christopher K. Harriott, Esq. prevails on appeal in case involving municipal prosecutor

Florio Kenny Raval, LLP was successful in obtaining an affirmance from the Appellate Division of an Order granting Summary Judgment in favor of a Municipal Prosecutor.

Christopher K. Harriott, Esq., a partner in the firm, defended the Municipal Prosecutor against claims by an individual who alleged that he was wrongly prosecuted for violating a non-contact order.

Mr. Harriott successfully argued before the Appellate Division that the claim was barred by the doctrine of qualified immunity as the plaintiff failed to demonstrate that the Municipal Prosecutor violated his statutory or constitutional rights and/or acted in bad faith.

As such, the grant of Summary Judgment in favor of the Municipal Prosecutor was affirmed.
