Scott County attorney removed from police shooting lawsuit
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - Scott County Attorney Mike Walton has been removed from a $5 million lawsuit filed after a fatal police shooting in 2018.
The lawsuit was filed after Robert Mitchell was shot by a Scott County sheriff’s deputy during a traffic stop on the north side of Davenport in October 2018.
About a month later, Walton determined the shooting was justified. The administrator of Mitchell’s estate dismissed a due process count against Walton in September.
Several other counts against Scott County and the deputy who shot Mitchell are still pending.
