Tesha Miller's mother, brother sue government
The mother and brother of reputed gang leader Tesha Miller have taken the government to court over the police seizure of two motor vehicles in March last year.
In the suit filed against the Attorney General, Sharon James and Harden Miller are seeking the return of their 2006 Tacoma Truck and their 2007 Honda Accord motorcar.
James is seeking damages for trespass on her premises, and both claimants are seeking constitutional and vindicatory damages.
In addition, they are claiming more than $510,000 and interest in special damages for loss of use of the motor vehicles.
The claimants contend in court documents that the police gave no reason for the seizure of the motor vehicles.
Attorney-at-law Bert Samuels, who is representing the claimants, says the first hearing of the claim is set for November 16 in the Supreme Court.
Samuels says the Attorney General’s department was served today with the claim form so a defence has not yet been filed to the suit.
