In a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday, Brett Lieberman alleges his constitutional and civil rights were violated when officials recorded calls with his attorney. The lawsuit seeks class-action status.
Attorney Steven Hart called authorities’ actions “outrageous.”
Sheriff Mike Lukas said he hadn’t been served with the lawsuit and didn’t have details. A message left with the District Attorney’s Office wasn’t immediately returned.
Online court records indicate the 37-year-old Lieberman was in the Portage County Jail awaiting trial and sentencing on a second-degree reckless endangerment charge. He was sentenced in January 2016 and has been at Fox Lake prison since then.
