Ryan Schorr (392)



11/18/2000: Within hours after breaking away from a hospitalization, mentally ill Schorr was visited by two local police, to retrieve him for an involuntarily commitment. There was a violent struggle, both officers were wounded, and Schorr was fatally shot. The family filed suit under a novel theory that a fatal police shooting violated ADA. This was upheld by the Third Circuit in 2003. https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1955&dat=20001120&id=pRQyAAAAIBAJ&sjid=u6MFAAAAIBAJ&pg=2850,4261088&hl=en
