A Wisconsin teen recently settled a dog bite lawsuit with St. Croix County and the Hudson Police Department for $210,000. About $110,000 of the settlement was given for medical expenses and attorney’s fees and about $100,000 was given for damages.
The 17-year old Hudson boy was bit by a police dog about 2 years ago. According to the lawsuit, the teen was running from a home where shots were fired when the police arrived and released the dog on him.
The teen and his mother argued that police used excessive force by releasing the dog onto him. The boy suffered permanent injuries to his arm from the dog bites.
