Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer who kneeled on Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes, is standing trial on murder and manslaughter counts. Three other ex-officers involved in the fatal arrest are charged with aiding and abetting and will be tried jointly in August. The family lawsuit was filed against the city on July 15, alleging the four former officers violated Floyd’s rights when they restrained him, CBS Minnesota reported.
