Year Description Outcome

The City of Graham, Graham Police Department, and Alamance County Sherriff’s Office have agreed to pay $336,900 to a group of plaintiffs that alleged excessive use of force during a voting rights march. The Legal Defense Fund, along with co-counsel Covington & Burling, LLP and veteran civil rights lawyer, Geraldine Sumter of Ferguson Chambers & Sumter, P.A., represented the plaintiffs.

The lawsuit was connected to a 2020 March to the Polls event, where sheriff’s and police officers pepper sprayed marchers, including children and the elderly, for blocking a street without permission. Under the terms of the settlement, both the police department and sheriff’s office do not claim any responsibility for the incident.
