Attorneys for a man wrongly accused in a Cass County double murder want former Douglas County CSI chief David Kofoed to pay $4.5 million in damages and attorney's fees for his role in the case.
Locke Bowman, who represented Matthew Livers in a federal civil rights lawsuit, filed a motion Wednesday asking U.S. District Judge Joseph Bataillon to award $3.3 million in punitive and compensatory damages and $1.2 million in attorney's fees.
