HSR Attorneys to Represent Family of Feras Morad in Federal Court, Tuesday June 26th

On Tuesday, June 26, 2018, HSR attorneys Dan Stormer, Josh Piovia-Scott, and Brian Olney will go to trial in federal court in Los Angeles, representing the family of Feras Morad. Feras was a 20-year old national debate champion who had just accepted a full scholarship to attend Cal State Long Beach. On May 27, 2015, Feras fell through a second story window and sustained injuries. Several Fire Department personnel arrived on the scene to render aid to the unarmed Feras. They were prevented from doing so, however, by a Long Beach police officer who arrived moments later. This officer ignored the firefighters' offer to help, refused to wait for backup, repeatedly tased Feras, and then shot him dead in front of numerous eyewitnesses, several of whom had pleaded with the officer not to shoot. This case seeks to hold to account the officer and City for this brazen, unnecessary, and unjustified killing.
