Lawsuit claims police ignored Constitutional rights

Dallas (AP) – Three Dallas women arrested amid protests against racism and police violence are suing the city and surrounding county in a challenge to the Texas anti-rioting law. Yolanda Dobbins, Lily Godinez, and Megan Nordyke filed suit in federal court Tuesday. They claim police selectively enforced Texas’ anti-rioting law in a way that targeted protests protected by the First Amendment, and ask the court to rule it unconstitutional. They were among hundreds of people police arrested but declined to charge in protests that followed the death in Minneapolis of George Floyd.
