'Pepper Spray Cop' Suit Filed - NPR →

Some of those Occupy protesters who famously got face fulls of pepper spray last November on the campus of University of California Davis have now filed suit in federal court.

They allege “the university used excessive force to break up the demonstration,” The Sacramento Bee writes. “The Occupy UC Davis students were sprayed as they sat on the ground.”

The American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California is assisting the 19 students and alumni who are suing.
