On Sept. 11, 2012, Deputy Brady Lovingier grabbed Waller by chains around his waist and slammed him into a window frame inside a courtroom. Lovingier, who is white, called Waller, who is black, "boy" as he ordered him to get up.
In a courtroom security video, Waller appeared to be calm as he posed a question to Judge Doris Burd. Lovingier then touched Waller on the back, leading the inmate to turn around. That's when Lovingier grabbed him by the waist chains.
Waller suffered broken teeth, a fractured bone around his eye, a gash on his head and a closed head injury, according to the petition. Waller's back, neck, legs and ankles also were injured.
Anthony Waller's complaint, filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Denver, seeks $5 million in damages and an injunction that would allow the courts to supervise operations of the Denver jails. "For decades the Defendant the City and County of Denver has been incapable of stopping the use of excessive force by its law enforcement," the lawsuit says. "The only remedy is for outside intervention to address the systemic, culturally ingrained use of excessive force by Denver law enforcement."
