Estate of Tamir Rice obtains new legal team that includes Subodh Chandra in its federal wrongful-death and civil-rights lawsuit

CLEVELAND, OHIO - The administrator of the Estate of Tamir Rice has engaged a new legal team as counsel that includes Subodh Chandra of The Chandra Law Firm LLC, and today sought federal-court substitution of this new team. Samaria Rice, Tamir Rice's bereaved mother, as well as Tamir's sister, engaged this same new team last month for their pursuit of justice. On November 22, 2014, Cleveland police officer Timothy Loehmann fatally shot Tamir, age 12. The incident sparked international concern.

The new legal team that the estate's administrator has engaged includes Earl S. Ward, Jonathan S. Abady, and Zoe Salzman of Emery Celli Brickerhoff & Abady LLP of New York as plaintiff's counsel for Ms. Rice and for Tamir's sister; Professor Charles Ogletree of Harvard Law School, who is cooperating counsel with the Emery firm; Subodh Chandra of The Chandra Law Firm LLC in Cleveland; and William Mills of Firm Equity in Chicago.

The civil-rights case addressing Ms. Rice's concerns is captioned, Winston, et al. v. City of Cleveland, et al., in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, Case No. 1:14-cv-2670 and is assigned to Judge Solomon Oliver.
