Case Summary

This lawsuit was filed on June 2, 2020 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota. The case arose out of the 2020 protests that began after Minneapolis police killed George Floyd. The plaintiffs in this case alleged that Minneapolis police targeted journalists covering the protests in violation of the First, Fourth, and Fourteenth Amendments. The original complaint sought class certification for a class consisting of "all members of the news media . . . who intend to engage in new…

This lawsuit was filed on June 2, 2020 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota. The case arose out of the 2020 protests that began after Minneapolis police killed George Floyd. The plaintiffs in this case alleged that Minneapolis police targeted journalists covering the protests in violation of the First, Fourth, and Fourteenth Amendments. The original complaint sought class certification for a class consisting of "all members of the news media . . . who intend to engage in news gathering or reporting activities in Minnesota related to the protest activities that followed the death of George Floyd and the law enforcement response to those protests." Defendants included various city and state officials and the City of Minneapolis; they were represented by ACLU Minnesota and private counsel.

The complaint alleged that police actions against the plaintiffs constituted retaliation in violation of the First Amendment, unlawful seizure and excessive force in violation of the Fourth Amendment, and unlawful arrests violating the procedural Due Process Clause in the Fourteenth Amendment. Plaintiffs sought a temporary restraining order (TRO), a preliminary injunction, a permanent injunction, class certification, declaratory relief, money damages with interest, and attorneys' fees. They also submitted separate motions for class certification and an expedited motion for a temporary restraining order. The case was assigned to Judge Wilhelmina M. Wright and referred to Magistrate Judge David T. Schultz.

On June 5, 2020, defendants opposed plaintiffs' motions for class certification and the TRO. Three days later plaintiffs amended their complaint to add an individual plaintiff and to add the Communications Workers of America as a plaintiff.

The next day, Judge Wright issued an order denying class certification and denying the TRO. Regarding class certification, Judge Wright stated that the plaintiffs would need to wait for more discovery to happen. On the TRO, Judge Wright said that there was no evidence, nor did plaintiffs allege, that the behavior plaintiffs sought to enjoin was persistent beyond May 31, 2020. To grant the TRO, the behavior plaintiffs sought to enjoin must have been "imminent." 2020 WL 3056705.

Before defendants could respond to the complaint, the plaintiffs filed a second amended complaint on July 30, 2020. The new complaint added charges of civil conspiracy to deprive rights, failure to intervene in defense of rights, violations of Due Process under the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, and another count of violating the First Amendment for retaliation.

The plaintiffs filed another motion for a TRO on April 14, 2021, seeking to enjoin the State Defendants from using physical force and chemical agents (like pepper spray and tear gas) against journalists, and prohibiting the defendants from seizing photographic equipment. Judge Wright granted the motion two days later and noted that the order would expire two weeks later. 338 F.R.D. 109. On April 29, Judge Wright extended the TRO to May 7, 2021, then extended it again to May 14. Meanwhile, the plaintiffs also filed a motion for a preliminary injunction.

On July 29, 2021, the court denied defendants' multiple motions to dismiss in all regards except for the Fifth Amendment due process claim. 2021 WL 3222495. The court noted that the Fifth Amendment only applies to federal actors; because a federal actor was not alleged as a defendant, this claim was dismissed.

The court converted the April 16 TRO into a preliminary injunction with two augmentations on October 28, 2021. 2021 WL 5003065. First, the court expanded the geographic scope beyond Brooklyn Center. Defendants had to provide copies of the preliminary injunction to all of the state defendants’ employees. Second, the court further expanded the injunction's scope by including not just the state defendant's employees, but also “other persons who are in active concert or participation with” them. The court also waived the bond requirement, as it did for the TRO, on plaintiffs' request.

The parties eventually reached a mediated settlement agreement. But because this case implicated important pubic interests, the settlement required approval of the district court. On February 8, 2022, the district court approved the parties request to convert the preliminary injunction into a monitored six-year injunction without substantial changes. 2022 WL 370161.

This case is closed pending defendant's compliance with the injunction.
