In November 2009, the team represented a Garda who was assaulted during the course of an arrest. The Garda was violently kicked and spat on by his assailant who was intoxicated from liquor and drugs. The assailant bit into the Garda's hand, causing the skin to break and bleed. In the aftermath of this incident, the Garda was required to undergo screening for Hepatitis C and HIV. Following a long and anxious wait, the tests were eventually returned in the negative. The Garda was awarded significant damages in November 2009.
