Marcavage files federal suit Michael A. Marcavage, director of Repent America, an anti-LGBT Christian group, has filed a federal lawsuit against the Philadelphia Police Department for allegedly violating his constitutional rights at four LGBT-related events in the city. A named defendant in the lawsuit is Capt. William V. Fisher of the department’s Civil Affairs Division, who allegedly “tore” a video camera from Marcavage’s hands last month during an LGBT march sponsored by Equality Forum. Other incidents cited in Marcavage’s lawsuit, which was filed June 2, allegedly took place at the LGBT Pride Parade and Festival in June 2007 and June 2008, and at a Proposition 8 demonstration near City Hall in November 2008. The case has been assigned to U.S. District Judge Eduardo C. Robreno. The city has not yet responded to the complaint. ■ — Timothy Cwiek
