Lawmakers in the City of Buffalo want answers on the status of a federal lawsuit
against a police captain.
That lawsuit makes serious accusations that police higher-ups did nothing in
response to racist comments toward Black officers.
City lawmakers requested that city lawyers provide an update on the lawsuit
Tuesday in Council Chambers. That happened in executive session.
Late last year, two Black Buffalo police officers and a mental health clinician, who
is also Black, filed a federal lawsuit against Buffalo police captain Amber Beyer —
claiming she repeatedly made racist comments to them while on the job.
