Man Exonerated In Malcolm X Murder Sues New York State

Muhammad Aziz, one of two men recently exonerated for the 1965 assassination of Malcolm X, sued New York State and plans to file a suit against New York City, The New York Times reported.

His claim against the state seeks at least $20 million in damages, “a modicum of compensation for the destruction wrought by this grievous miscarriage of justice,” the lawsuit stated, citing the damage that the wrongful conviction inflicted on Aziz’s mental health, reputation and relationships.

According to the Times, his legal team notified New York City that they plan to file a $60 million civil rights lawsuit against the city as well if a settlement isn’t reached.
