The former secretary to San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, Esther
Hwang, will hold a news conference at noon Wednesday to announce
a civil rights lawsuit that she plans to file against the San
Francisco Police Department.
In a statement released yesterday by Hwang's attorney, Hwang
alleges that she was harassed and wrongfully arrested by officers
at around 10:30 p.m. on May 12 in the city's North Beach district.
Hwang claims that on the night if the incident, she had been
standing in front of a North Beach nightclub when she became the
victim of an "unprovoked attack'' by two officers as she
was waiting for her boyfriend on a sidewalk.
Wednesday's news conference will be held at the North Beach Modeling
Agency, located at 228 Columbus St in San Francisco.
