Federal Court Allows Lawsuit by Flint Police Officers to Proceed

Jason Cooper, WFNT

A federal court of appeals will allow a lawsuit by fourteen Flint police officers against the city to move forward. According to WNEM, the officers – who are all white – say they were illegally punished after complaining that black officers became sergeants in 2011 and 2012 despite failing to pass an exam. The lawsuit names former Chief Alvern Lock and a police captain. The appeals court said even though it is early, the case can go forward and that there is enough evidence to raise a “plausible” inference that police department policies led to discrimination and retaliation.
