Occupy Oakland protesters sue OPD and Alameda County Sheriff's Department in federal court

OAKLAND -- A federal class action civil rights lawsuit was filed against Oakland and Alameda County by a group of Occupy Oakland protesters who were arrested and held in jail but never charged with a crime.

The lawsuit stems from a Jan. 28, 2012, protest during which more than 400 protesters were arrested in front of the downtown YMCA and booked into Santa Rita Jail after a day of marches that included protesters trying to take over the Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center.

The lawsuit, filed by one-time mayoral adviser Dan Siegel and Berkeley attorney Yolanda Huang, claims that Oakland police officers and the Alameda County Sheriff's Department violated protesters' constitutional rights by conducting unlawful arrests and false imprisonments.
