Jake Sussman and Salisbury attorney Randy Reamer brought an excessive force lawsuit on behalf of Rev. J.W. Loy against the Salisbury Police Department and one of its officers. Rev. Loy, who was 91 years old at the time, was injured after Officer C. Hamm tackled him to the floor during an encounter at an assisted living facility in Salisbury. The defendants agreed to pay Rev. Loy $180,000 to resolve the case.
