Tulsa police officer files lawsuit over attending mosque event
by David Harper
A Tulsa police captain who refused to require that some of his subordinates attend an upcoming Law Enforcement Appreciation Day at a Tulsa mosque filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday, claiming that his First Amendment rights have been violated.
Capt. Paul Fields also claims that Deputy Chief Daryl Webster - the sole defendant in the case at this point - retaliated against him for his "exercise of his First Amendment Rights" and singled Fields out for disparate treatment.
Fields asked for $1 in nominal damages on each of his two claims, attorneys' fees and whatever other relief "the court deems just and proper under the circumstances."
