3 Occupyers Sue NYPD Over Pepper-Spray Attack

It's been building since last October and finally three OWS folks go to court today over the infamous incident in the early days of Occupy, with bad guy cop Tony Bologna (real name), the NYPD and the City the targets. "In addition to monetary damages, the lawsuits seek an order that the city establish and maintain a policy regarding the use of force during demonstrations and conforming with federal standards."  The incident helped galvanize national support for Occupy.
