MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - A judge has ordered Minneapolis city leaders to court Wednesday morning in the Jamar Clark excessive force lawsuit.
Mayor Jacob Frey, City Council President Lisa Bender and Police Chief Medaria Arradondo are all ordered to attend. No other details have been released, but the timing comes less than a week after the city settled a $20 million lawsuit with the family of Justine Ruzczyk Damond.
In 2017, the Clark family filed a lawsuit against the two officers involved in Jamar Clark's death, claiming they violated his civil rights and used unreasonable excessive force. The officers were not charged.
