Black Lives Matter of Los Angeles (BLM-LA) and Los Angeles Community Action Network (LACAN) just filed a federal class action lawsuit against the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) for excessive force and civil rights violations against George Floyd Solidarity protesters. The suit seeks damages, declaratory, and injunctive relief on behalf of a class of thousands of protesters who sustained injuries by police and were subject to excessive detention without access to bathrooms or medical care.
Lawyers who are members of the National Lawyers Guild of Los Angeles (NLG-LA) represent the class.
