VA didn’t let 75-year-old vet display ‘distress’ flags; now comes lawsuit
JULY 05, 2017
It all started with two American flags upside down on a fence.
A conservative-rights foundation has sued several Veterans Affairs police officers and officials for allegedly violating the constitutional rights of a 75-year-old military veteran who has protested at a VA facility in West Los Angeles for almost a decade, according to documents obtained Wednesday.
The lawsuit — filed by attorneys for Judicial Watch in federal court in Los Angeles — seeks damages and asks the court to enjoin further violations of Robert Rosebrock’s constitutional rights.
