Judge Tosses Lawsuit against Tulsa in Wrongful Conviction

A federal judge granted the city of Tulsa’s motion for summary judgment Friday in a lawsuit filed by a Glenpool man who was freed from prison as a result of a police corruption investigation.

U.S. District Judge Tim Leonard ruled that while the court “does not countenance” the police behavior that prompted Bobby Wayne Haley Sr. to file the lawsuit, Haley did not demonstrate that the city of Tulsa should be held liable for it.
