NAACP v. City of San Jose

Crowd of demonstrators with signs reading Black Lives Matter and I will never understand but I stand in downtown San Jose

Rachel Lederman is lead counsel on a team of civil rights lawyers who are preparing a class action lawsuit against the San José Police for police brutality and false arrests of Black Lives Matter protesters on May 29- June 7, 2020. Plaintiffs NAACP – San José/ Silicon Valley, San José Peace and Justice Center, and 13 individuals are seeking to change SJPD’s practices, address SJPD racism, and obtain monetary compensation for all who were injured or wrongly arrested. We expect to file the lawsuit in federal court in February, 2021. If you were shot, hit, gassed, or arrested, please get in touch.
