No error in excluding expert testimony on use of force

In Clem v. Corbeau, the Fourth Circuit in a per curiam opinion for the panel of Judges Motz, King, and Gregory affirmed a jury verdict in favor of a police officer in an excessive force case, rejecting among other arguments the plaintiff/appellant's claim that the trial court improperly excluded expert testimony on the proper use of force.

The opinion indicates that Senior Judge Leonard D. Wexler of the E.D. N.Y. presided over the trial, which was in Alexandria.
