Judge Rules in Racial Profiling Case Against MSP

Posted:

BALTIMORE (AP) - A Maryland judge has granted full court costs and attorney fees to plaintiffs in a case seeking records of racial profiling complaints against the Maryland State Police.

The ruling Tuesday awards nearly $590,000 to civil rights attorneys over seven years of litigation.

Gerald Stansbury, president of the Maryland State Conference of NAACP branches, says the ruling sends a strong message to government officials and law enforcement that transparency and accountability is vital to a healthy relationship with the communities they serve.

The NAACP sought records to determine whether state police have truly investigated complaints about racial profiling.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland and Venable LLP represented the NAACP in the case.
