Thomas Martinez has filed a federal lawsuit claiming that former census taker Susan Dyck went too far trying to get his cooperation.
Dyck at one point "misrepresented herself as a potential renter" and made late-night phone calls "attempting to convince him to complete a census inquiry," the lawsuit said.
On Feb. 14, 2005, Martinez confronted Dyck and told her he'd call police, according to the lawsuit. Then "in the process of attempting to flee," Dyck backed her vehicle into Martinez, the lawsuit said. [Link]
