Former Tacoma police officer Timothy Rankine, acquitted in the killing of Manny Ellis, a Black man who died in police custody, is taking legal action against city and state officials. Rankine alleges false accusations of criminal and racist misconduct, seeking $94 million in damages. The case involves allegations of excessive force leading to Ellis' death and subsequent legal proceedings resulting in acquittals for the officers involved. The Department of Justice is reviewing civil rights violations related to Ellis' death, while state officials are considering revoking certifications for the acquitted officers. A federal lawsuit from Ellis' family against the city and officers is pending, with a previous settlement with Pierce County for $4 million.
