Portland Ore – Six people have sued the city of Portland, alleging they were roughed up by police at various protests since 2016. The lawsuits were filed in Multnomah County and publicized by the American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon.
Five of the six lawsuits seek no more than $10,000. The other suit, filed by a woman who suffered a broken nose, asks for $200,000.
A spokesman for Mayor Ted Wheeler said the city does not comment on pending litigation.
