WTOP reports that a Baltimore judge has granted a motion to dismiss the civil lawsuit against Officer Rivieri for assaulting a minor. There’s been a back and forth about whether the suit could be filed; the underlying point of law has a restriction that suit must be filed within six months, which it was not. Whether or not this applied when a juvenile is involved is the issue that the boy and his mother would need to appeal, which their lawyer seems to have some doubt they can afford to do.
Rivieri is back on the beat, presumably continuing his history of delightful behavior. Here’s another one of his efforts to reach out to the youth on the inner harbor.
