Case No. No. 07-CV-1385, United States District Court, District of Colorado
ACLU Case No. 2006-06
ACLU lawyers sued a Colorado Springs police officer who used his heavy police-issued metal flashlight as a club to beat the ACLU’s client, Delvikio Faulkner, a young African American who was riding with two other young African American men in a car that had been stopped for a minor traffic violation. The lawsuit alleges that Faulkner was struck six times, including three blows to the head, which the suit alleges is the equivalent of deadly force.
