California Sikh says cops delayed investigation into racist threats. Now he's suing.

May 12, 2022

A practicing Sikh man filed a federal lawsuit this week against Sutter County, alleging the Sheriff’s Office deprived him of his civil rights by failing to adequately investigate a pair of racist hate crimes he says he experienced last year.

The case centers on two incidents that Rouble Claire, the plaintiff, considers so brazen he can’t believe they happened.

They stemmed from a routine trip Claire took last May to South Butte Market, a short drive from his rural Northern California home.
