(Louisville, KY) - A new lawsuit alleges LMPD officers violated the constitutional rights of Kentucky Representative Attica Scott. 

The suit filed Monday against two officers and former interim Chief Robert Schroeder says the Democrat and two other women had their rights to due process and equal protection violated when they were arrested on felony rioting charges during protests over the police shooting death of Breonna Taylor

The suit claims Scott, her daughter and an activist were arrested prior to a curfew issued during protests last September. 

All charges against the women were later dropped.
