Woman who sued two Tulsa Police officers speaks about verdict

Updated:
A family at the heart of a lawsuit filed against two Tulsa police officers is speaking out about their two-year legal battle.

In April of 2000, Debra Miller and her children were pulled over by two off-duty police officers that thought a rock was thrown from her vehicle. She says the officers, Buddy and Lori Visser, had their weapons drawn.

Miller filed a lawsuit, and a federal jury handed down a $150,000 judgment against the Vissers. Debra Miller, plaintiff, "I didn't do anything wrong. Just driving down the highway. So for my story to come out, and the truth to be told, I was very happy about it." Wayne Copeland, Miller's attorney, "I told the jury they didn't have the authority to take away their guns or take away their jobs, but they could sure punish them for the actions they inflicted on the Millers on April 7th of 2000."

The Visser's attorney says his clients have no comment on the jury's decision. But the judgment will be appealed to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver.
