Denver protest class action lawsuit
A class action lawsuit has been filed in federal court in Denver alleging that, during the protests in Denver in May and June 2020, the Denver police and other law enforcement agencies providing assistance to Denver police (1) used excessive force on protestors, and (2) wrongfully arrested protestors for violation of the nighttime curfew, in violation of their right to freedom of speech and expression. See here. If the Court certifies this class action, this lawsuit will represent certain classes of people impacted by the law enforcement misconduct set forth in the lawsuit and not just the named Plaintiffs.
We are reviewing the stories of potential class members and witnesses. If you or someone you know was present for the protests in Denver beginning on May 28, 2020, and (1) had force used on them by police, such as, for example the use of a chemical agent such as tear gas or pepper spray, or being hit with a projectile (e.g., rubber/foam bullet, tear gas canister, pepper balls, etc.), OR (2) were arrested solely for violation of the curfew (and/or failure to obey the curfew), please complete the following form to the best of your ability so that we can follow up with you to obtain more information.
We will treat information submitted by you about your own experience as privileged and confidential to the fullest extent required by the law and attorney ethical standards. If, however, you are submitting information about someone else, that information may not be subject to attorney-client privilege and may be subject to disclosure.
