California Judge Throws Out Hmong Farmers’ Discrimination Claims
On September 12, a federal judge in Sacramento ruled that sheriff’s deputies and other officials in Northern California’s Siskiyou County did not discriminate against Hmong residents while carrying out marijuana enforcement operations and other investigations last year.
The suit against Siskiyou Sheriff Jon Lopey and other county officials stemmed from Hmong residents’ claims that they were harassed and intimidated based on their ethnicity. The suit also claimed Hmong residents were disproportionately cited for marijuana violations.
But Judge John Mendez wrote: “Plaintiffs simply do not identify any ‘longstanding practice or custom’ of the County discriminatorily enforcing medical marijuana ordinances and related laws against Asian Americans.”
