Judge rules Utah county violated rights with gang injunction
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A federal judge has ruled a Utah county violated the rights of two men who were targeted using an injunction restricting the actions of suspected gang members.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports the ruling in U.S. District sided with Leland McCubbin and Daniel Lucero of Ogden, who both were convicted of violating the injunction.
Ogden City settled its portion of the case with McCubbin and Lucero in 2018, but the American Civil Liberties Union lawsuit against Weber County continued.
U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups says in the ruling that the injunction did not include any way for people to challenge government assertions they were Ogden Trece gang members.
The Utah Supreme Court overturned the injunction in 2013 and found the county did not properly serve summons to gang members.
