LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge has ruled that a former bank executive can take two Los Angeles police officers and the city to trial over claims that they beat him during a bizarre incident in 2012.

In two orders Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge R. Gary Klausner ruled that former Deutsche Bank executive Brian Mulligan's claims of negligent supervision and false imprisonment will be heard at the Jan. 21 trial. Klausner dismissed Mulligan's retaliation claim against the city for losing his bank job.

Mulligan filed suit in 2012, demanding $20 million in damages for allegedly being beaten on May 15, 2012, by two officers during an encounter that left him hospitalized. Officers alleged he admitted ingesting so-called bath salts.

Klausner dismissed a retaliation claim by Mulligan against the police union last month.
