In a complaint filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania in November 2010 and amended January 2011, Janet Watson and her husband, William
Watson, claim that police officers summoned to their home by the neighbor, John Pili, attacked, assaulted, battered and illegally seized Janet Watson, then placed her in a jail cell overnight where she was deprived of sustenance and medical attention, “forced to beg for toilet paper” and “endure the humiliation of going to the bathroom in an area visible to male officers.”
The Watsons’ formal complaint includes assertions of civil rights violations, assault and battery, false imprisonment/arrest, negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and loss of consortium directed in all or part against Pili, Haverford Township, the police department, Officers Harvey Pike and Steven Gill, and three unidentified police department personnel.
