ACLU to file suit alleging discrimination in police hiring

Posted By on Wed, Aug 22, 2012 at 11:21 AM

This just in: The ACLU apparently intends to file a class-action federal lawsuit against the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police, alleging "a longstanding pattern and practice of racial discrimination against African Americans" in hiring black applicants.

The ACLU plans to hold a press conference on the suit tomorrow -- notable timing, considering that just this week, the Ravenstahl administration touted the diversity of the most recent class of police recruits.

Stay tuned.
