Protesters Say Pasadena Police Violated Civil Rights, File Lawsuit

Protesters say Pasadena police brutally attacked them during former Mexican president Vicente Fox's 2012 visit.

A group of protesters are claiming Pasadena Police Department officers attacked them outside a lecture, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday against the City of Pasadena and its police force.

The alleged attack took place outside a lecture delivered by the former president of Mexico, Vicente Fox, in November 2012.

The protesters say police brutally attacked them, and the lawsuit charges Pasadena police with violating their rights to free speech and free assembly. 

Protesers opposed Fox's actions during his term as Mexico's leader.

Calls to the City of Pasadena and the police department were not returned as of the time of posting.
