DIPAK RAIKAR, PLAINTIFF-APPELLANT,
TOWNSHIP OF OLD BRIDGE AND THE POLICE DEPARTMENT OF OLD BRIDGE, DEFENDANTS-RESPONDENTS.
On appeal from the Superior Court of New Jersey, Law Division, Middlesex County, L-0221-06.
NOT FOR PUBLICATION WITHOUT THE APPROVAL OF THE APPELLATE DIVISION
Submitted April 22, 2008
Before Judges Coburn and Grall.
Plaintiff, Dipak Raikar, filed a pro se complaint in the Law Division alleging claims for false arrest, the use of excessive force, and violation of his constitutional rights. Apparently, the action arose as a result of the police insisting that he leave a retail store that he claimed he was involved in operating with his business partner, Falgun R. Dharia. After discovery had been completed, defendants, Township of Old Bridge and the Police Department of Old Bridge, moved for summary judgment. After considering the arguments offered by the parties, Judge Ryan granted defendant's motion for summary judgment. The order was entered on August 17, 2007, and plaintiff appealed.
After carefully considering the record and briefs, we are satisfied that all of plaintiff's arguments are without sufficient merit to warrant discussion in a written opinion, Rule 2:11-3(e)(1)(E), and we affirm substantially for the reasons expressed by Judge Ryan in his oral opinion of August 17, 2007.
