Court Addresses Specificty Requirements With Respect to Federal Court Complaint

In the case of Bravo v. City of Philadelphia, No. 22-5190 (E.D. Pa. Sept. 19, 2023) (Op. by Pappert, J.), the Eastern District Federal Court declined to dismiss a Complaint for lack of specificity as to which allegations applied to specific individual Defendants where the Complaint alleged that all Defendants were aware of the decedent’s alleged mental health issues and suicidal ideation. 

The court noted that discovery could further refine the role each Defendant allegedly played in the decedent’s death and with respect to the alleged violation of his constitutional rights.

As such, the Defendant’s Motion to Dismiss was denied.
