(Minneapolis, MN) -- A permanent injunction is now in place prohibiting the Minnesota State Patrol from arresting or attacking journalists.
Those actions happened to reporters documenting the unrest following the police killings of George Floyd and Daunte Wright. The injunction stems from a class-action lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union of Minnesota in 2020.
The case was settled Tuesday and included an 825-thousand dollar payout to the journalists who were attacked and injured by MSP troopers while covering the protests after Floyd and Wright's deaths.
