Time: 1:56 PM

Here's the latest developments in the Democratic State Senate race between Duane Perkins and Terry Tierney.

The Perkins campaign announced that they raised the money necessary by the primary deadline to qualify for the state's new public finance system.
Duane Perkins, city of Danbury councilman and endorsed candidate for State Senate is proud to announce that he has raised the appropriate funds to qualify for the public financing system by the July 18th deadline, the paperwork was submitted early on Friday July 18th. Over the past months Duane has successfully raised over $15,000 and has a list of over 300 contributors to qualify. Duane is excited to move into the next phase of the campaign and spread his message throughout the 24th district.

"I am very excited that Duane Perkins is about to qualify for public financing of his campaign to be our next State Senator. Failed Republican leadership at the state and national level has left our economy in a shambles and jeopardized the American Dream for too many Americans. Duane Perkins received overwhelming support at the 24th District convention, and will receive overwhelming support on primary day, because he is the only candidate who will bring new energy, vision and ideas to the State Senate. I'm confident that a strong victory on August 12th will set Duane on the path to victory in November." - Joe DaSilva, Jr., Chair Danbury Democratic Town Committee.

"I am proud to have raised necessary $15,000 to qualify for the public campaign finance system. Nothing but hard work and dedication has brought us to where we are now, and hard work and dedication does not fall short when it comes to myself, my supporters and the citizens of the 24th district. We are going to run a hard campaign, and I am looking forward to facing the Republican Nominee in November."

The Tierney campaign has scheduled a series of television appearances where he outlines his platform and in the case of the 23rd, will take live phone calls from his constituents on a range of issues.

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.

The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.

Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.

Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
