Attorneys for the family of George Floyd, a 46-year-old Black man who was killed in police custody, announced a lawsuit Wednesday against the city of Minneapolis and the four police officers charged in his death. Attorney Ben Crump and co-counsel Antonio Romanucci made the announcement about the civil lawsuit.
The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Minnesota alleges that the four officers violated Floyd’s rights when they restrained him and that the city allowed a culture of excessive force, racism and impunity to flourish in its police force.
