Martin Gugino, the 75-year-old protester who was knocked to the ground by police officers last year in Buffalo, New York, filed a civil lawsuit against the city Monday, according to court documents. Gugino is also suing the Buffalo mayor, three officers, the police commissioner and the deputy police commissioner, according to the document. Gugino, who fractured his skull when he fell, is accusing the defendants of violating his constitutional rights, specifically his rights to freedom of speech, peaceful assembly, protest, movement, unreasonable seizures, freedom from the unlawful use of force by government agents, and due process of law, according to his lawsuit. CNN has reached out to the mayor’s office and Buffalo Police Department for comment on the lawsuit.
