A town hall meeting to discuss the Atlanta Eagle’s settlement with the city of Atlanta in the federal lawsuit following the city’s illegal police raid on the gay bar last year is set for Monday, Dec. 20.
Speaking at the forum will be Dan Grossman, lead attorney for the plaintiffs; Beth Littrell, attorney for Lambda Legal; and Gerry Weber, attorney for the Southern Center for Human Rights. Lambda Legal and SCHR also represented the plaintiffs in the lawsuit.
There will also be a representative from Building Locally to Organize Community Safety (BLOCS) at the forum.
The city was ordered last week by a federal judge to pay out $1.025 million to the plaintiffs and their attorneys in the lawsuit as well as make significant changes to its police policies.
The lawsuit stated the Atlanta Police Department and its Red Dog Unit illegally searched and detained patrons of the bar when it was raided Sept. 10, 2009, violating their constitutional rights.
