Civil Rights Groups File Amicus

Hispanic National Law Enforcement Association, United Black Police Officers' Association, National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives, Public Justice Center, American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland and Washington Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs file amicus curiae brief in Support of Appellant Chief Kelvin D. Sewell.In 2015, Chief Sewell stood up for another Black officer who faced racediscrimination, and both became targets for retaliation by white officials. Soon after,Sewell was abruptly fired without explanation.This brief argues that Chief's Sewell's prosecution was unfairly influenced by the defendants in his civil rights case, and is otherwise compromised by discrimination and retaliation that minority police officials often face when they stand up against mistreatment.
