a man who was cut off while driving and later shot by an off-duty Baltimore police officer on June 27 settled a suit against the city and the officer for $204,900. Dwight Allen, a 32-year-old state inspector, was driving in Baltimore when off-duty police officer Stuart Parker cut him off. Parker, who was not driving a police car or wearing a uniform, pulled Allen over. Allen claimed that, after Parker drew a gun, he threw his arms in the air, yet Parker went ahead and shot him in the thigh. Parker claimed that Allen charged at him. Allen was charged and convicted of assault, but his conviction was later overturned because the city failed to disclose its witnesses. He then sued, alleging assault, false imprisonment, false arrest, battery and malicious prosecution. Allen v. Parker, No. 24-C-00-005051 (Baltimore city, Md., Cir. Ct.). PLAINTIFF’S ATTORNEYS: A. Dwight Pettit and Mitchell D. Treger, Law Office of A. Dwight Pettit, Baltimore DEFENSE ATTORNEYS: Myron T. Brown, Baltimore; Eileen A. Carpenter, Baltimore
