Human rights complaint filed by Minn. GovernorThe state of Minnesota has filed a human rights complaint against the Minneapolis Police Department in the death of George Floyd.

Gov. Tim Walz and the Minnesota Department of Human Rights announced the filing at a news conference Tuesday.

The department enforces the Minnesota Humans Rights Act, which is meant to protect residents in employment, housing, public accommodations, public services, education, credit and business based on their protected class. Mediation is one of the department's first-choice tools, but the cases it files can lead to fuller investigations and sometimes end up in litigation, The Associated Press found.
