Racketeering lawsuit against the City of Racine heads to federal court

MILWAUKEE -- A lawsuit filed against the City of Racine heads to federal court in Milwaukee today. 


The racketeering case stems from allegations by a group of former Racine bar owners that the city's mayor conspired with a dozen other named defendants to push at least six minority bar owners out of town.


The complaint says the city was motivated by money, power, and racism to run Black and Hispanic tavern owners out of town through a policy of discrimination to shut down or \"clean up\" downtown Racine.


A scheduling conference is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. where attorneys will discuss the next steps in the case.


CBS 58's Matt Doyle has more.
