A Geneva man has initiated legal action against the Geneva Police Department and one of its detectives.

John H. Sweet, has initiated legal action against the City, Geneva Police Department and Detective Steve Vine following a vehicle accident last year that allegedly left Sweet with serious injuries.


The lawsuit, lodged on January 22 by attorney Evan Bane in the Ontario County Supreme Court, accuses Detective Vine of negligence, recklessness, and carelessness during the incident on March 24, 2023, at the intersection of Lewis and Genesee streets.

City officials have not yet commented on the legal action. At this point, the City has a 30 day window to reply to the suit.
