SAN JOSE, Calif. – Donald Trump supporters who were attacked following a June rally now have the opportunity to sue the city of San Jose and its officials for failing to protect them.
On Thursday, October 13th a federal judge dismissed three of four claims by the victims but allowed the claim of negligence stand.
San Francisco-based attorney Harmeet Dhillon, who is also the RNC National Committeewoman for California, is representing the Trump supporters.
Dhillon is accusing San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo and Police Chief Eddie Garcia of allowing her clients to be attacked as they exited the San Jose Convention Center.
Dhillon plans to add more plantiffs to the case as she says more attendees have come forward with similar cases.
The judge scheduled a jury trial in 2018.
At least 20 people were arrested for attacking Trump supporters following a rally held by the Republican presidential nominee on June 2nd.
