The city of Westbrook has taken the first steps to deal with a potential lawsuit
from a local man injured in an encounter with a police department parking
enforcement and animal control officer in 2009. According to a notice of claim
filed with the city, Daniel Casale, 49, of Mechanic Street, is seeking $1.4
million in damages from an Aug. 12, 2009, incident on West Pleasant Street.
