More plaintiffs have come forward against BHPD for being Black while on Rodeo Drive
BEVERLY HILLS, Cal. –– Nationally renowned civil rights and personal injury attorney Ben Crump and co-counsel Bradley C. Gage will hold a press conference on October 13 to provide an update on developments in a class action lawsuit against the city of Beverly Hills and Captain Scott Dowling for Beverly Hills Police Department’s targeting of people of color via a task force dubbed “Rodeo Drive Team.” New victims and attorneys will discuss the continuing developments, including the mediation set for October 16.
From August 2019 to August 2021, 1088 Black people were arrested by the Beverly Hills Police Department but only two have resulted in convictions. Ninety percent of people arrested by the Rodeo Drive Team were Black even though only 1.5% of the Beverly Hills population is Black. Recently, attorneys Crump and Gage have been in-touch with witnesses who, while working for LAPD, were racially profiled themselves in their authorized police vehicles by the LAPD. The legal team is demanding $500 million.
