ACLU helping file the federal suit


The family of a man who was holding his grandson when Scottsdale police fatally shot the man in February will file a federal lawsuit against the city Monday, the American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona has announced.

The plaintiffs are relatives of John Loxas, who was 50 when Scottsdale police responded to a report of a man threatening neighbors with a gun on Feb. 14, said Alessandra Soler, executive director of ACLU of Arizona.
