SCSJ's Client Eva Foster Seeks Justice

Eva Foster, 87, a jazz legend and well-respected member of the community in Greensboro, is supported by the Beloved Community Center and other groups as she seeks compensation from the Greensboro Police Department for injuries she suffered three years ago when she was unjustly handcuffed by the police during a raid on a convenience store.  In December, 2012, the City agreed to pay Ms. Foster $15,000 to settle her case.  Left unresolved, however, are what steps the Greensboro Police Department and the City of Greensboro have taken to make sure this does not happen to anyone else in the future.
