Federal Judge: Christian's Harassment Case Can Proceed

Reporter Calvin Christian’s lawsuit alleging that he was the target of a widespread campaign of harassment by Springfield police will be allowed to proceed.


Federal judge Colin Bruce has rejected the city’s attempt to have Christian’s civil rights complaint dismissed.


The city had argued that Christian’s suit did not offer enough evidence of a conspiracy against him to allow the case to proceed.


But the judge rejected that argument and said the suit can go forward.


Christian alleges he was targeted by police because of his efforts to seek internal affairs files and expose lax disciplinary standards within the department.
