Eight Chicago police officers conducted illegal, open-air strip searches without probable cause, a federal lawsuit filed Wednesday claims.

The controversial searches, partially seen in video footage picked up by all the city’s TV news stations this week, reportedly took place on May 23, 2013 in the 9000 block of South Laflin Street, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

The lawsuit claims police in an unmarked squad car pulled over the three plaintiffs — two men and one women — after the officers drove the wrong way down a one-way street, the Sun-Times reports.
