FARGO (KFGO-AM) - A trial date has been set for a police brutality lawsuit against the Richland County Sheriff's Department.
Three men claim they were injured when two deputies used excessive force during a traffic stop in Abercrombie. They're seeking unspecified damages for mental anguish, pain and suffering.
Federal Magistrate Karen Klein has scheduled a jury trial for October 6, 2014.
An attorney who represents the deputies says the men's claims are "exaggerated."
