But because of an incident on Aug. 16, 2003, he has now filed a civil lawsuit against three NT police officers. The lawsuit claims the officers slammed Elliott's head, face-first, onto the trunk of his car and signed a false affidavit stating that Elliott assaulted them. Attorney Richard Gladden filed the lawsuit against officers Greg Prickett, Mark Linnell and William Hitt on July 29 at the 158 district court. Gladden said the jury would probably find damages up to or more than $50,000 and hopes punitive damages will be issued to deter similar actions in the future.

Boston art heist: FBI says it has solved mystery of $500m theft The FBI says it has solved the decades-old mystery of who stole $500m (£330m) worth of art from Boston's Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, but it is withholding the identities of the thieves, adding a further twist to the largest property heist in US history. On the 23rd anniversary of the theft, authorities announced a new publicity campaign aimed at generating tips on what they still do not know: where the missing art is. Their focus has shifted from catching the thieves to bringing home the precious work, including paintings by Rembrandt, Manet, Degas and Vermeer. "The key goal here is to recover those paintings and bring them back," US Attorney Carmen Ortiz said at a news conference at the FBI's Boston headquarters. Just after midnight on 18 March 1990, two men posing as police officers pulled off the heist, stealing 13 pieces of art in 81 minutes.
