Police Misconduct Case Filed Too Late

The case of Cofield v. The City of Baltimore involved allegations of police brutality (assault, false arrest, false imprisonment, etc.). However, the United States District Court for the District of Maryland dismissed the case largely because the Plaintiff waited too long to file it. The court held that both the state and federal claims were governed by the Maryland statute of limitations (legally imposed time for filing a case). Generally, a case must be filed within three years of the date a party has a right to sue.
