LOS ANGELES (AP) - A federal appeals court has rejected a former Hollywood and bank executives allegations that he was beaten by Los Angeles police officers.

The Los Angeles Times reports (https://lat.ms/2byPM8l ) that on Monday the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court’s ruling that Brian Mulligan could not bring a lawsuit against the police union.

Mulligan, a former co-chairman of Universal Pictures and executive with Deutsche Bank, was injured when he allegedly tried to attack two police officers who were trying to arrest him in 2012.

Police say Mulligan was acting suspiciously, trying to get into people’s cars and screaming. They say he ran from officers and tried to scratch them.

Mulligan’s attorney says his client was kidnapped, forced to go to a motel and then beaten.

The police union denies these claims.
