Piccuta Law Group Jury Trial Win Reported in the Bakersfield Californian Newspaper
On May 25, 2017, the Bakersfield Californian newspaper reported the results of a federal civil rights verdict obtained by the Piccuta Law Group. The case involved a prisoner who claimed he was set up by prison guards to be assaulted by other inmates. The prisoner claimed that this was the result of him filing a staff complaint against the guards and that the guards covered up the assault after his leg was broken. A jury found the guards guilty for arranging the assault and covering it up.
Charles Tony Piccuta of the Piccuta Law Group represented the prisoner. The jury awarded the prisoner $130,000. The Californian quoted Piccuta as saying: “I am glad the jury saw the truth and held the guards accountable for what they did. Mr. Bryant waited for seven years to tell his case to a jury and the jury spoke. The jury’s message was clear—no one is above the law and everyone has rights that should never be violated, even prisoners.”
The prisoner had contacted over 140 other attorneys and law firms before finding Piccuta and his firm. All the other attorneys and law firms declined to take his case. Piccuta agreed to enter the case less than two weeks before trial.
