$1,750,000 pre-trial settlement for teen kicked in testicles during arrest.
  Plaintiff, 17 years old at the time, was a passenger in a speeding vehicle that was pulled over by New York City police officers. Plaintiff claimed he was forcibly removed from the vehicle, placed face down on the pavement and kicked in the testicles. He was then transported to the precinct. Shortly thereafter plaintiff was released by the police; he was never charged. The offending police officers denied assaulting plaintiff, and were acquitted of all criminal charges. Plaintiff suffered a ruptured testicle which had to be surgically removed. As a result plaintiff suffered from a low sperm count and had not been able to father a child as of the date of settlement. The City argued that the assault never occurred, that the plaintiff’s testicle was injured independent of the event, and that plaintiff was not clinically sterile. On the eve of trial Amy Rosenbloom negotiated a settlement of $1,750,000 for plaintiff.
