Vicki Ferrari: Jury sides with Denver cop/ex-American Gladiator contestant in lawsuit

Update: Last week, a jury sided with Vicki Ferrari, a Denver cop and former American Gladiators contestant in a lawsuit charging her with excessive force in relation to an interaction with David Kraus, manager of a local Grease Monkey, back in 2007. On Friday, we heard from Kraus's attorney, David Lane, who was downcast about the verdict. Ferrari's lawyer, Sean Olson, weighs in today with a very different take.
