Police officers are on trial for getting rough with reporters at last year's May Day immigration rally in Los Angeles Michael Nagle/Getty Images

Closing arguments began today in a civil lawsuit brought by three journalists in which they allege the city of Los Angeles and the LAPD are responsible for injuries they received in May of 2007 during an immigration rally in MacArthur Park. KPCC reporter Patricia Nazario, KTTV-TV Channel 11 reporter Christina Gonzalez and KTTV camerawoman Patricia Ballaz were in the park on May Day and all were injured in encounters with officers of the LAPD. KPCC’s Molly Peterson has been covering the trial and brings us the latest.
