News: Dave Richards & Sarah Spencer win 10th Circuit Appeal
// Nov 1, 2017
This week Christensen & Jensen partners secured a win for city representatives of Cottonwood Heights at the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. Sarah Spencer and Dave Richards received word that the court would side with the city, affirming a lower court's decision to dismiss plaintiff claims. Plaintiffs had claimed 4th amendment violations when the city used a DOPL substance abuse database in investigation and felony charges against them. Christensen & Jensen successfully argued that use of the database was allowed without probable cause, and pointed out several legal and procedural flaws in the appellants' arguments. Thanks to the efforts of Dave Richards and Sarah Spencer, the 10th Circuit affirmed the lower court's decision, vindicating the city and its representatives.
