Lomax has sued the two veteran officers — Gladstone has since retired from the department — for at least $75,000. His lawsuit is the first to reach to trial from among several men who sued Baltimore police after their arrests in the riots. The men have said officers caused them abrasions, contusions, nerve damage, swelling and internal injuries. Hundreds of people were arrested during the unrest and the curfew, but many were released without charges. Many others saw their charges dropped.
