Counts include false imprisonment, deprivation of civil rights, and Violation of the Florida Civil Remedies for Criminal Practices Act.

Safety Management Steps Taken by Insured to Make Similar Occurrence Less Likely
Worked closely with defense counsel to resolve claim. I could not find the street address of the Claimant or his date of birth. The claim file did not contain that documentation. I used "Street address not known" for address and used 01/01/1960 for the date of birth. If the specific information is needed, please let me know. Thank you.
