Legal Question

Asked on: 9/08/12, 4:52 am

My son had a civil suit against the police department for an excessive force and wrongful arrest. They made an offer, that he turned down. His lawyer told him that was a bs offer and that he had gotten more for less. He then was supposed to have a trial by jury. His lawyer never filed because he was in the middle of a "big case" so the case was thrown out. His lawyer filed an appeal that was denied. Does my son have any recourse?
