Hadsell Stormer Richardson & Renick Files Class Action Against FBI On Behalf Of Southern California’s Muslim Community

HSRR attorneys Dan Stormer, Josh Piovia-Scott and Reem Salahi, along with the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California and the Council on American Islamic Relations are co-counseling a class action lawsuit against the FBI alleging illegal and unconstitutional surveillance of the Muslim communities in Southern California. In a fourteen month operation, the FBI employed informant Craig Monteilh who was specifically tasked with targeting Muslims and mosques in the Southern California region. As a consequence of Monteilh’s violent provocations, Muslim organizations in Orange County reported Monteilh to the FBI and received a temporary restraining order against Monteilh. The FBI subsequently revealed Monteilh’s role in spying and reporting on the Muslim community, in direct contravention to the First Amendment. HSRR, ACLU-SC, and CAIR are now suing the FBI for injunctive relief. Read more.
