Municipality Hires Private Law Firm For Anthony Rollins Civil Lawsuits
Women claim the city and APD didn't do enough to protect them
ANCHORAGE - There are new developments in the Anthony Rollins civil lawsuits against the Municipality of Anchorage and the Anchorage Police Department (APD).
According to court documents, the city has hired a private law firm – Clapp, Peterson, Tiemessen, Thorsness and Johnson – to help defend its self. Multiple women made claims that APD and the municipality failed to protect them by allowing the former officer to roam free.
The private law firm will add to a long list of attorneys the municipality has already hired.
Rollins was convicted last year of serial rape while on the job and will be sentenced next Friday for the criminal case.
Rollins, the city and APD have been named in 11 civil lawsuits.
