A Seymour man has filed a lawsuit against five city police officers claiming his wrongful arrest in September 2011 has cost him emotionally and that he fears reprisals from those involved. The city says it wants that suit transferred out of the county.
Michael Tibbett, who filed his complaint in Jackson Superior Court I, seeks compensatory damages, punitive damages and any other compensation the court considers proper. He was found not guilty of the charge of disorderly conduct.
Seymour Mayor Craig Luedeman said the city’s insurer is representing the city in the matter. Its insurance policy carries a $10,000 deductible on such lawsuits.
