Information from the Official Settlement Website:
This is the official web site for the class action lawsuit, Angell et al v. City of Oakland and Alameda County, et al. This lawsuit is about the mass arrest in Oakland, California, on January 28, 2012, when the Oakland Police Department and several other law enforcement agencies arrested approximately 360 people in front of the YMCA at 2350 Broadway in downtown Oakland. Most of the arrestees had been marching in a demonstration associated with Occupy Oakland, ‘Move-In Day’. Some neighborhood residents, observers and others were also arrested. The plaintiffs are suing for violations of their civil rights arising from the arrest, and from the confinement on Alameda County Sheriff’s vehicles and in the Alameda County Jail.
The class consists of all persons who were arrested on January 28, 2012, in the mass arrest at on Broadway, between 23rd and 24th Streets, in Oakland, and who were not charged with any crime related to this arrest. On this website you can find case documents and other information for class members.
