SEATTLE — A Washington federal judge has scheduled a June 2020 jury trial in a case in which a public entities self-insurance association is demanding $8.9 million in reinsurance from Ironshore Indemnity Inc. for its settlement of police misconduct and excessive force claims brought against two cities.
In a March 11 scheduling order, Judge Richard A. Jones set Feb. 3, 2020 as the deadline to complete discovery.
