Published reports say a Hammond man, a member of the Hutaree militia group based out of Michigan, along with another member, are suing three FBI agents and a state trooper, saying their constitutional rights were violated in a 2010 raid on their homes. Thomas Piatek, of Hammond, and a Manchester man reportedly filed the federal lawsuit last month, and are seeking at least 25-thousand dollars in damages for each for the lawsuit's 16 counts. The pair were part of group of Hutaree Militia members accused of plotting to kill law enforcement with guns and bombs, but the case was thrown out of court due to lack of evidence.
