Judge tosses $30M lawsuit brought by wounded police trooper

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A federal judge has thrown out a $30 million lawsuit filed by an Oregon State Police trooper who was shot 12 times in December 2016. KOIN-TV reports Nic Cederberg and his wife sued Legacy Meridian Park Hospital claiming the suspect, James Tylka, should not have been released because police requested a mental health hold. But the judge ruled it is not reasonable to conclude that holding Tylka would have changed his criminal actions. Last year the judge also dismissed a lawsuit Cederberg and his wife filed against Washington County’s 911 center. Cederberg was left with long-term disabilities from the shooting. He has several weeks to file an appeal.
