Massachusetts lawyer Simon Glik is suing three Boston police officers and the city in federal court for arresting him after he used his cell phone to record police allegedly using force during an arrest in October 2007. The ACLU of Massachusetts and attorney Howard Friedman filed Glik v. Cunniffe on Monday. Glik seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages. "We hope the lawsuit will have the effect of changing the practice and training policies in Boston," Friedman said.
