1. Protesters file suit against UC Berkeley for alleged police brutality
Source: 89.3 KPCC

Two dozen protesters are suing UC Berkeley for alleged police brutality during a crackdown on protesters who tried to set up an Occupy camp on campus.

The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in federal court by 24 students and community members who say they were jabbed, clubbed and had their hair pulled by baton-wielding police on Nov. 9.

Occupy protesters clashed with the officers when the demonstrators pitched tents next to Berkeley's Sproul Plaza.

Widely circulated online videos of the confrontation led to community outrage, an apology from the chancellor and the launch of multiple investigations.
