A Papillion man who was detained in the Sarpy County Jail for four days in 2010 is suing the county, the sheriff and 10 jail and immigration officers, arguing that he was suspected of being in the country illegally although he is a naturalized U.S. citizen.
Ramon Mendoza, now 48, filed the lawsuit in federal court this week with the American Civil Liberties Union of Nebraska.
