Family of Ali Osman files notice of claim seeking $85 million

The household of Ali Osman  — the person who was fatally shot by Phoenix law enforcement officials after he threw rocks at them — is seeking $85 million from town of Phoenix and Phoenix Police Department.

The household’s lawyer, Quacy Smith, filed the notice of claim Friday in opposition to the City of Phoenix, the Phoenix Police Department, Chief Michael Sullivan and officers Jesse Johnson and Brennan Olachea who they collectively establish as “responsible parties” within the doc. 

“The Claimants seek an award of damages reasonably calculated to compensate for the injuries they suffered in connection with the wrongful death of Ali Osman on September 24, 2022,” the doc says. 

On Sept. 24, officers who had been patrolling the world close to nineteenth and Glendale avenues mentioned they noticed a person, later recognized as Osman, throwing rocks at one of the patrol automobiles, in line with Sgt. Brian Bower, a spokesperson with Phoenix police.
