Dr. Werner U. Spitz has been retained as an expert for the plaintiff in the case of White v. Geradot pending in the Northern District of Indiana. Dr. Spitz is a well-known forensic pathologist and the Professor of Pathology at Wayne State School of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan. Dr. Spitz was retained by plaintiff Arlinthia White, whose son Derrick Ford was shot and killed by Fort Wayne police detective Mark Geradot on January 10, 2004 after a fight broke out outside a VFW hall. White claims that Geradot used excessive force in violation of the 4th and 14th Amendments. The district court judge in the case recently granted in part and denied in part the defendants' motion for summary judgment.
