Kofi Patrong, 32, wins right to sue the force for its alleged role in a 2004 gang-related shooting that left him with a debilitating leg injury.

Kofi Patrong can be forgiven for his distinct feeling of déjà vu.

For six years, he has been fighting for the right to sue the Toronto police service for its alleged role in a 2004 gang-related shooting that left him with a serious leg injury.

Through the years, his complex lawsuit has started, then stalled, in the courts.

In 2013, an Ontario court rejected his lawsuit. Two years and a revised lawsuit later, Patrong earned the right in court to proceed with his claim — a victory police then appealed.
