SAN DIEGO — A Superior Court jury has awarded more than $11 million in damages to man who suffered brain injuries when he was knocked to the ground by a San Diego police officer in 2006.
Pablo Gomez, 28, fractured his skull in the incident in the Gaslamp Quarter. He sued the city of San Diego and Officer Joseph DeVeaux last year for negligence and battery.
