Case summaries have been taken directly from Oakland City Attorney records and/or federal or state court documents. For more on our methodology, visit How We Analyzed Our Police Officer Data.
Single name entries may or may not refer other officers already in the database. We attempted to use Oakland City Attorney records and/or OPD employment lists to confirm the full names of officers who were listed by their last name only in court records. When we could not, we used the single name.
The settlement page for cases with many plaintiffs may only include the first few names listed in the lawsuit.
