Fort Worth police bungled search warrant, kept elderly couple in yard, suit alleges

Kay Van Wey, partner and founder of our client Van Wey, Presby & Williams, PLLC, is co-counseling the #policebrutality case of Nelda Price.

Price, a Black healthcare professional, is filing a lawsuit against the city of #FortWorth, Texas after police barged into her home with no explanation and excessively forced her and her husband onto the ground while held at gunpoint. After ransacking the house for hours and depriving Mr. Price of his heart medication, the officers released the innocent couple. Following the incident, the Prices developed post-traumatic stress, and Mr. Price passed away from the effects a few weeks later.

Read the full story featured in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram below.

In the front yard, Nelda Price waited in her nightgown. Her husband was in his pajamas. For about four hours, as officers executed what the couple would later learn was a search warrant seeking methamphetamine, they wondered what had drawn the police.

Happy #NationalSkyscraperDay to the best city in the world! We're so fascinated by New York's history and the skyscrapers that make the city what it is today. 🏙

#FunFact: Did you know that back in the 30s the architects behind the Chrysler Building and the Empire State Building were in a heated race to build the tallest skyscraper in the world? Multiple additions were added to the buildings' original designs in order to top the other. Ultimately, the Empire State Building ended up being the tallest in the world thanks to the last-minute addition of the spire at the top of the edifice.

Which skyscraper is your favorite? Chrysler or Empire? Let us know in the comments!

Our Story

Public relations is often regarded as something that either happens or it does not, and all one needs to do is be honest with reporters and appropriate media coverage will follow. Not so. PR is also often mistaken for “free advertising.” But it's earned - always. A comprehensive public relations program has the power to shape the public’s perception of your product or service. Because PR is built on relationships—ours with our clients and with journalists—it is usually more credible, and is always as time-consuming as advertising. While strong relationships with reporters, editors, and producers are crucial to the success of a planned media relations program, relationships alone will not secure coverage. Creating unique story angles and identifying timely news hooks, proper research and targeting, and aggressive pitching and follow-up all contribute to stories that drive your business forward. PR is also rarely a once off. It requires effective monitoring, and constantly identifying and/or creating new angles or entirely new tactics. You can sit back and wait for media to find you. RLM knows that stories that are published and produced communicate the right message to the right audiences at the right time. “Wait and hope” tactics, however, are rarely (if ever) as effective as a comprehensive, proactive public relations program. A properly planned and executed PR program drives demand for and sales of your product or service. It positions our people (client sources) as experts in the marketplace. It generates growth opportunities for customers. It is what we stand behind because that’s where they all want to go. That is our mission. Simple! RLM seeds the market and creates customer demand before a product or service is available. Once it is, we ensure that goals are clear for our clients and media. (And media means more than just the constantly-thinning press.) It's a simple process and it's kept us in business for 20 years. RLM PR 1991 - 2019 and counting.
