The City of Richmond just received some good news today. John Burris’s office, on behalf of his client Jasmine Abuslin (Celeste Guap), this afternoon filed the Dismissal with Prejudice of her lawsuit (Jasmine Abuslin v. City of Richmond, et al) against the City and several current and former police officers. The dismissal needs only the judge’s signature to become final.
This is most likely in response to a successful effort by the Richmond City Attorney’s Office to convince Burris that her case against Richmond was sufficiently weak to discourage prosecution.
The lawsuit against Richmond was filed in August of 2017. Oakland settled a similar lawsuit for $989,000 in May of 2017.
