Case Summary

On May 9, 2007 organizations and individuals present at a May 1st immigration rally in MacArthur Park in Los Angeles, CA filed suit against the City of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Police Department in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.

On May 9, 2007 organizations and individuals present at a May 1st immigration rally in MacArthur Park in Los Angeles, CA filed suit against the City of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Police Department in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. The plaintiffs, represented by private counsel and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, included the Multi-ethnic Immigrant Workers Organizing Network, the Korean Immigrant Workers Alliance, the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights Los Angeles, IDESPCA, Pilipino Workers Center, Garment Workers Center, and numerous individuals. The plaintiffs alleged that the LAPD used excessive force in trying to disperse the rally, therefore violating the U.S. Constitution's 1st, 4th, and 14th amendments, the California Constitution, and California Civil Code § 52.1. The plaintiffs sought declaratory and injunctive relief, along with damages.

On January 8, 2008, District Court Judge Howard Matz certified a class for both structural relief and monetary relief. The certification for structural relief included anyone who engaged or may engage in peaceful demonstrations in LA, and who at the time of the demonstration were or are: (1) one of the plaintiff organizations; (2) officers and representatives of the plaintiffs' organizations, including people who participate in the Plaintiffs' organizations' events; (3) other organizations who advocate and/or organize on behalf of individuals' right to free speech and assembly; and (4) people who participate in events put on by the organizations described in (3). The certification for monetary relief included any persons present at the May 1, 2007 rally between 5-7pm who did not engage in conduct justifying the LAPD's use of force, and who were subject to the force or other unlawful police activity.

The parties worked with Magistrate Judge Carla Woehile to negotiate a settlement agreement. On March 19, 2009, the court granted preliminary approval of a settlement agreement. The settlement created a class fund of $250,000 for unrepresented class members, and a represented individuals fund of $12,550,000 for the individual plaintiffs named in the suit. The agreement also stipulated an award of the class attorney's fees of $3,753,000. Judge Matz granted final approval of the settlement agreement on June 23, 2009 and dismissed the suit with prejudice. The structural relief order, issued by Judge Mantz on June 24, 2009, restricted the LAPD from interfering with individuals' right to free speech for any reasons other than protecting public safety or public health, and required LAPD officers to issue a Declaration of Unlawful Assembly before taking any action. The relief order also placed restrictions on the methods of disbursement the LAPD may use, including limiting the use of less lethal weapons, batons, motorcycles and low-flying helicopters that would interfere with the demonstrators' right to free speech. Aside from these restrictions on use of force, the order stipulated that LAPD officers undergo annual training on proper crowd control policies and techniques.
