Supes to vote on $385K tasered doc settlement

The Board of Supervisors votes Tuesday on whether to approve a $385,000 settlement with Mehrdad Alemozaffar, a Harvard University resident physician who filed a lawsuit against The City after he says he was shocked more than 10 times with a taser and beaten by police.

The lawsuit said that he was attacked after asking for the badge number of officer Jesse Serna, a police officer with a long history of complaints.

The 2007 lawsuit is based on a Dec. 17, 2006, incident in North Beach. Alemozaffar, then a UCLA student, claimed officers pinned him against the street and smashed his head multiple times against the asphalt. Officers then tied his hands behind his back in nylon restraints before jolting him with a Taser more than 10 times, the lawsuit claimed.
