The Department of Justice has sued Ferguson to force an overhaul of the cities criminal justice system. U.S Attorney General Loretta Lynch filed a civil rights lawsuit Wednesday following a decision by Ferguson’s city council Tuesday to challenge several measures in a draft reform agreement the city had negotiated with federal officials.

Speaking at a news conference in Washington DC Wednesday, Loretta Lynch said “We intend to aggressively prosecute this case and we intend to prevail”

The law suit says Ferguson is guilty of a pattern or practice of law enforcement actions violating the 1st, 4th and 14th amendment’s of the US Constitution and federal civil rights laws.
