US 3rd Circuit Court approves appeal in civil lawsuit dismissal

Even at 81 years old, Don R. Ickes of Bedford County is continuing to pursue a civil lawsuit against several area police officers whom he claims roughed him up during a traffic stop nearly six years ago. Ickes said upon receiving notice that the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia agreed to hear his appeal from the U.S. District Court's ruling last August dismissing the lawsuit.
