A group from Orlando’s vacation homes is suing the city, accusing the city of “systematically and systematically and systematically” targeting Muslims.
In their lawsuit filed Tuesday, the families say they were “repeatedly targeted and harassed” for their faith, including “in public spaces, during religious services and at events.”
The lawsuit, filed in state court in Orlando, says the city has “systemically and systematically targeted and targeted” Muslims and Muslims in general.
The lawsuit states that on July 31, 2017, the group went to a park in the City Park neighborhood.
The lawsuit states the park is “a predominantly Muslim neighborhood” and “has long been home to a number of Muslim-owned businesses.”
The suit states the city had received “substantial complaints of discrimination and harassment” in the past two years, and the city responded to the complaints.
The plaintiffs are asking the judge to order the city to allow them to use the name and photograph of their daughter, and to allow the plaintiffs to use their own daughter’s name and picture in the lawsuit.
The city has said it does not allow any other names or photographs of children.
In the lawsuit, the plaintiffs state the city was not able to locate their daughter because she was in jail.
The family also said their daughter’s parents have also been in jail for alleged crimes.
