There is something majorly wrong with this as lawyers are only allowed to charge a client up to 33% of the settlement amount, think that the settlement awarded was $450, grand but the judge only awarded the plaintiff $1,000 therefore the cops bribed the judge to screw the plaintiff out of the total awarded amount. T plaintiff should have asked that the awarded settlement amount be paid into court cause then the total amount would have gone to the plaintiff and lawyer would have only gotten paid the legal amount of up to 33% of total settlement

It's an extreme case for sure, I imagine (would hope) that someone would look into it further.
