ACLU Backs Decision in Police Harassment Suit

April 10, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

A settlement in a March 2001 lawsuit accusing Cincinnati police of harassing blacks received final approval from the American Civil Liberties Union.

The ACLU in Ohio unanimously voted to support the deal, said Scott Greenwood, the chapter's lawyer.

The ACLU was the fourth and final party to approve the settlement, which was reached last week. The deal still must be approved by a federal judge.

The police union, City Council and black activists also voted for the deal, which creates a new agency to review police complaints.
