Settlements
Year Description Outcome
2021

The Kansas City Police Department agreed to end their use of banishment orders and to conduct training on the First Amendment rights of protestors in order to settle a lawsuit stemming from protests against police misconduct in June 2020.

The lawsuit alleged that the Department had violated Theresa Taylor’s right to protest by banning her from returning to the Country Club Plaza after arresting her and 100 others during protests against police brutality. The banishment order provided that, if Taylor were to return to the Country Club Plaza, she would be arrested and charged. The settlement clears the banishment order, prohibits officers from adding conditions of bond release beyond those imposed by the court, and requires officers to be trained on free speech, anti-bias, and de-escalation practices.
