CBP-Spokane Federal Tort Claim (Sosa)

This court case is completed

A routine bus trip home to his family became a nightmare for a man whom U.S. Border Patrol agents unlawfully detained for hours as he tried to travel from Montana through the Spokane Intermodal Center to his home in Washington.

On behalf of the detained man, Andres Sosa Segura, the ACLU of Washington (ACLU-WA) and Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP) today filed a claim under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA). The FTCA allows people to collect monetary damages for wrongful conduct by federal government employees. Sosa’s claims include false arrest and false imprisonment.
