Trimet transit police sued by ACLU

"Portland, Gresham, and TriMet failed to adequately train and supervise Officer Letsis and the other individual defendants before and during the incident," the complaint reads, "and maintained policies that allowed and condoned the acts and omissions of the police during the incident, and which showed deliberate indifference to the rights of Ms. Medina under the First, Fourth, and Fourteenth Amendments."
 Although Transit officers are overseen by Portland police officials, and funded through TriMet, legal agreements between police agencies, as the Mercury has reported, leave discipline up to each officer's home department.
