News: C&J obtains $500,000 settlement for Nurse Alex Wubbels

Alex Wubbels and her attorneys at a press conference to announce $500,000 settlement

Since Wubbels went public with the arrest video,our client has had several goals, including changes to policy on how police interact with nurses; accountability by the officers involved; starting a public discussion on the importance of body camera video; compensation; and helping others.  Those goals have each been met in some meaningful way.  Policy changes have taken hold, the officers involved have been disciplined, and the widespread attention the case garnered in the press pushed forward an important discussion about the importance of bodycameras.

Wubbels is working with the American Nurses Association on the #endnurseviolence campaign to prevent what happened to her from happening elsewhere. She will also contribute to the Utah Nurse's association, and would like to speak before the Utah Legislature during the next session about the importance of making body cameras mandatory for all police agencies. Alex Wubbels and Christensen & Jensen want to help all Utahns have access to body camera video for their own cases.

We all deserve to know the truth. And the truth comes when you see the actual raw footage. And that’s what happened in my case. No matter how truthful I was in telling my story, it was nothing compared to what people saw and the visceral reaction people experienced when watching the footage.

–Alex Wubbels


That's why we've launched a new campaign at utahpolicevideo.com.  With a generous donation from Nurse Alex, a fund will be created to pay the costs of requesting bodycam footage from police departments.  Christensen & Jensen has agreed to help free of charge with public information requests and to help with appeals when those requests are denied.  For more information about how to obtain your own bodycam footage, or to have a free consultation to review footage you've already obtained, contact us today.
