On March 20, 2005, undercover police officers from the Flint Area Narcotics Group entered Club What’s Next as part of a drug sting. While some of the officers were able to buy drugs from a few patrons at the club, the majority of people at the club were not involved in any drug activity.
Nonetheless, the cops handcuffed, strip searched, and even body cavity searched many of the 100 plus patrons at the club. All charges were later dropped. $282,235.01 was awarded in attorney’s fees
Attorneys from the ACLU represented the Plaintiffs. See: Thompson v. City of Flint, No. 2:07-CV-11107 (E.D. Michigan 2009).
