Law’s Michael Benza discusses exoneration of two men from 2006 shooting

2 men exonerated of 2006 shooting last year after 15 years in prison file lawsuit against prosecutors
WEWSMichael Benza, professor of practice at the School of Law, discussed the case of two men who were exonerated of a 2006 shooting, and the lawsuit they’ve filed against the City of Cleveland Law Department and the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office, alleging the officers who arrested them suppressed exculpatory evidence and fabricated evidence, leading to their false conviction. “Ohio does have provisions in our law for people who have been wrongfully convicted to obtain monetary awards to cover their loss,” he said.
