The Seattle NLG has a team willing to explore civil litigation to address police tactics used against peaceful demonstrators. The NLG & ACLU have brought similar litigation after the attacks on Occupy Oakland.
The idea is to possibly combine damages claims for individuals with a challenge to a policy of using torture, pain and force where it is not necessary, in lieu of arresting or removing people engaged in non-violent protest (or actually against people who are not engaged in any illegal activity of any kind, as in the pepper spraying of people on the sidewalk two weeks ago).
