George Floyd’s Family Files Civil Lawsuit Against Minneapolis And Police, Lawyers Say
The family of George Floyd has filed a civil lawsuit against the City of Minneapolis and the four former police officers involved in the Black man’s killing on Memorial Day. Civil rights and personal injury attorney Ben Crump, along with co-counsel Antonio Romanucci, announced the lawsuit at a news conference Wednesday in Minneapolis.
“This is a crisis in Black America — a public health crisis,” Crump told reporters. “While all of America is dealing with the public health crisis of the coronavirus pandemic, Black America has to deal with another public health pandemic of police brutality.”
