Adam Dormer, 26, was acquitted of obstructing a peace officer [typical 'cover charge'] by provincial court Judge John Reilly in January. In his decision, Reilly said his finding was based on the fact the officers had no right to arrest Dormer and that he was subjected to excessive force when tasered while in handcuffs. That decision was subsequently upheld by Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Marsha Erb in June. [LINK]
Society would be best served by Dormer being awarded the full amount and not accepting any settlement offers with attached non-disclosure agreements.
That's the only way that The Message will emerge.
My recommendation to Dormer would be that the minimum settlement for damages be the $2.5M, but the added feature of a non-disclosure agreement will cost an extra $10M. That sort of counter-offer will make the political masters stop and think.
