The Atlanta Eagle, and patrons who were present during the police raid on September 10, 2009, filed a federal civil rights lawsuit this morning against the City of Atlanta, Police Chief Richard Pennington, and the individual police officers involved in the raid. The lawsuit was filed jointly by Atlanta attorney Dan Grossman, the Southern Center for Human Rights, and Lambda Legal.
A complete copy of the complaint is available for download, and additional details about the lawsuit will be posted soon: Calhoun v. Pennington [pdf]
