Federal lawsuit dismissed

October 23, 2012

A federal lawsuit filed in 2009 alleging racial profiling on behalf of U.S. Border Patrol and several law enforcement agencies in northwest Ohio, including Attica Police Department, has been dismissed. The lawsuit, which alleged the Border Patrol and police departments in Attica, Norwalk and Plymouth detained and interrogated Hispanics about their immigration status based solely on their appearance, violating Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights, was dismissed because the court lacked jurisdiction to consider plaintiffs' claims.
