Montana juries have a tendency to be conservative, and tend not to feel sorry for complainers, so more than likely the decision will be in favor of the City of Billings. And since when does Montana Headlines cheer for trial lawyers suing for damages?
But then, one never knows -- only the jury has all of the presented evidence and only they have the reponsibility to sort through it all to make a decision.
Will lessons be learned from this that will make the Billings Police Department a more unified and peaceful place to work? Probably not -- at least as long as certain people are still around to stir the pot.
