A federal lawsuit has been filed against the City of Danbury, four police officers, the police chief and library director over a video recording incident at Danbury Library in June.  Hearst Connecticut Media reports that YouTuber SeanPaul Reyes claims his First and Fourth Amendment rights were violated.  Reyes is preparing another lawsuit related to his arrest at Danbury City Hall in July.  The four Danbury police involved were reprimanded for violating various department policies after an internal investigation.  The complaint filed Thursday says the plaintiff seeks redress for municipal police employees’ decision to harass him while he was peacefully filming inside the Danbury Public Library.  Officials previously said that libraries are “limited public forums” and administrators may implement reasonable rules to ensure that the facility is used for its intended purposes.  The library’s code of conduct, revised the day after the incident, now states that patrons must get permission from the library director to film or photograph.
