Conservative activist files $10M suit against city of Minneapolis


John Gilmore, a conservative activists and blogger, has filed a $10 million lawsuit against the city of Minneapolis over his June 16, 2011 arrest on Nicollet Mall in which he was accused of confronting two women in traditional Muslim dress.

Gilmore’s complaint, filed on April 30, alleges that the city’s “baseless” arrest created a narrative of Gilmore as “bigoted, intolerant and prejudiced toward Muslims, Muslim women in particular,” a narrative he claims is false and has continued to damage his reputation.
