Protesters who were arrested on the Brooklyn Bridge last week have filed a lawsuit against the city of New York, claiming police lured them into a trap and arrested them. The suit claims officers directed the protesters onto the bridge’s roadway and then announced that anyone on the roadway would be arrested. That announcement, the suit claims, was barely audible to any of the protesters. The class-action suit demands the arrests be expunged and the tactic deemed illegal.
