Danbury 11 Lawsuit Against ICE Continues In Court

The Associated Press reported on April 4, 2009 that a federal judge rejected a motion by ICE to throw out a lawsuit that challenged ICE arrests in Danbury, Connecticut. Nine of the plaintiffs were arrested in September 2006 as part of what is known as the Danbury 11. The lawsuit claims ICE violated civil rights and engaged in the unauthorized enforcement of civil immigration violations. ICE argued that the civil rights claims cannot be brought in the federal courts. The federal judge rejected ICE's motion and the cases will continue to be heard.
