21-CV-848 Estate of Antonio Gonzales v Mensah et al, 21-CV-1179 Estate of Alvin Cole v Mensah et al, 22-CV-856 Estate of Tracy Cole v Mensah et al
Decision and Order
The family members and estates of three individuals fatally shot by former Wauwatosa police officer Joseph Mensah bring these consolidated actions alleging Mensah, former Wauwatosa police chief Barry Weber, and the City of Wauwatosa violated their constitutional rights. Defendants in two of the cases filed motions to dismiss, arguing that plaintiffs had not alleged a basis of liability for Weber and the City of Wauwatosa. The court determined that the complaints stated an individual capacity claim against Weber and Monell claims against the City of Wauwatosa.
