Group of Truckers in People’s Convoy Sue D.C. Over Free Speech Violation

Sixteen truckers from the People’s Convoy are suing D.C. over blockades they argue prevented them from exercising their “constitutionally protected right to free speech.”

The civil case was filed Monday in the U.S. Court of the District of Columbia, arguing the plaintiffs’ First Amendment rights were violated, per Just the News.

The plaintiffs are seeking a jury trial.

The truckers argue their convoy in March was blocked from entering the city by vehicles from the District’s Metropolitan Police Department and Department of Public Work.

They are suing for violation of due process, not granting equal protection and violation of free speech.

They also claim that the blockade is responsible for a crash that killed two when a speeding vehicle hit a dump truck on an interstate.
