A group of Latino immigrants is accusing the East Haven Police Department of racial bias.

The New York Times reports a lawsuit has been filed on behalf of nine Latinos who claim to have been targeted by officers in the department simply because of their ethnicity.

The men say they have been assaulted and arrested on false charges.

The suit also claims police routinely harass Hispanic business owners.
