NCSF is actively involved in supporting the Atlanta Eagle and the plaintiffs in this suit. In the case filed by Lambda Legal, Southern Center for Human Rights, and Dan Grossman as representation for the plaintiffs, a federal law suit alleging multiple civil rights violations was filed November 24, 2009.
In speaking with Leigha Fleming NCSF Board Chair, Wednesday afternoon, attorney Dan Grossman said, "NCSF's publicity and support is very welcome and needed in this effort."
Said Ms. Fleming, "We need everyone in the Alanta community getting involved in this. There's a mayoral election coming up. Ask your candidates their opinions of the police action at the Eagle and whether or not they support the kind of bigotry and discrimination exhibited. Blog about it. Talk about it. All the various Eagle's around the country should link to this. Support this lawsuit and support NCSF."
Said Grossman, "The police believed that they could violate the rights of these men precisely because they were in a gay _leather_ bar."
