Transgender woman sues city for false arrest – James Turner – Metro Winnipeg

A transgender woman who claims police officers yanked her from her car at gunpoint and mocked her because of her sexual orientation is suing the City of Winnipeg for allegedly breaching her rights against unlawful and unjustified detention.

Nikki Cox filed a statement of claim seeking damages against the city and police officials in Manitoba’s Court of Queen’s Bench Monday. The claim contains unproven allegations that have not been tested in court.
