More than a year after the murder of Humboldt State University student David Josiah Lawson, a man--Kyle Zoellner--accused but ultimately not charged with the crime, has filed a lawsuit against the city of Arcata. Zoellner alleges that police and city officials violated his civil rights.
The lawsuit seeks over $25,000 in damages and also alleges officers failed to get him proper medical attention and falsified police reports in the criminal case. The North Coast Journal's Thadeous Greenson talks about this story.
