Al-Jazeera reporters file lawsuit claiming mistreatment by St. Charles Co. officers during Ferguson

Al-Jazeera reporters file lawsuit claiming mistreatment by St. Charles County officers during Ferguson riots

ST. LOUIS Three journalists who reported on the 2014 Ferguson riots for Al-Jazeera America filed suit Monday against St. Charles County and three police officers, claiming personal injuries and violations of their constitutional rights.

The suit by Ash-har Quraishi, Marla Cichowski and Sam Winslade in U.S. District Court in St. Louis names St. Charles County, Deputy Michael Anderson of the St. Charles Regional SWAT Team and two unidentified police officers as defendants.

The reporters claim Anderson tear-gassed them, and allege that police officers shot at them more than once, dismantled their equipment, ordered them to leave the scene of protests and ultimately tried to cover up their own behavior.

The reporters claim the actions toward them were unwarranted.
