Plaintiff drops lawsuit against AVH
ASPEN Two paramedics and Aspen Valley Hospital are out of the cross-hairs of a local woman’s lawsuit that alleges wrongful arrest and forcible tranquilization.David Lane, the attorney for Bronwyn Anglin, recently submitted a motion to dismiss the hospital and paramedics as defendants. The lawsuit is seeking redress and damages from numerous parties after her arrest on Dec. 11, 2004.Until this point, all defendants, including various Pitkin County deputies, Aspen police officers and the city of Aspen, were working together in the legal battle. The defendants offered a $2,400 settlement in late February, which Anglin rejected.Neither Anglin nor her lawyer was available for comment, so it is unclear if the motion for dismissal was part of a settlement. The plaintiff filed the lawsuit Aug. 11, 2006, in U.S. District Court in Denver. Because of the large number of defendants, the case is moving through the legal system slowly. Depositions have been completed, but there is no trial date for the case.
