Suit filed over evangelists' arrests at festival
by J. Patrick Pepper
The city was sued Tuesday in federal court in a lawsuit that contends city policies are enforced and interpreted to favor Muslims over Christians.
The 96-page, 12-count complaint lists more than 15 city officials and police officers as well as Arab International Festival organizers as defendants in a lawsuit originating from the arrests of four Evangelists during the June Arab Festival. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for Eastern District of Michigan.
The suit claims the city and festival organizers conspired to restrict the free speech rights of Acts 17 Apologetics and retaliate against the group for an incident at the 2009 Arab Fest.
