Occupy Oaklander marchers who were hit by a car during a 2011 protest have sued the city of Oakland as well as BART, according to reports.
Margaret So and Lance Laverdue were struck by a car driven by Jan Carrigg as they marched through downtown Oakland last year, according to the Oakland Tribune. They filed a federal lawsuit against BART and the city for failing to pursue a criminal case against Carrigg, the newspaper reported.
BART and Oakland police allowed Carrigg and his passenger to leave the scene without a formal investigation, according to the lawsuit. That means those two police departments “aided and abetted the assault and battery,” the lawsuit alleges.
Attorneys Pamela Price and Simona Farrise are seeking damages in excess of $250,000 for their clients.
