Giovanni Ramirez has filed a second Federal lawsuit against the LAPD when they wrongfully accused and arrested him in the Bryan Stowe beating at Dodger’s Stadium. Ramirez’s latest lawsuit is accusing the LAPD of violating his civil rights. His lawsuit claims the police illegally searched his home during a parole check in May 2011, searching for evidence in the Stow beating.
The suit also alleges due process violations, fabricating evidence, defamation, making false statements to the press to prejudice a criminal case and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Ramirez first filed a lawsuit in July 2011, based on a defamation suit against the LAPD and Chief Charlie Beck. Beck called Ramirez the ‘primary aggressor” and a “thug” which are stated in court documents. Ramirez alleges Beck convicted him in the public eye without any forensic evidence.
The LAPD defends its arrest and incarceration of Ramirez and says it followed standard, established procedures throughout the investigation.
