ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Police Department has been told by a federal judge to implement training that was ordered after a settlement in a lawsuit over a raid on a gay bar.

WABE-FM (http://bit.ly/1KMxJDk ) reports one of the attorneys involved in the suits, Dan Grossman, appeared in court Tuesday and said reforms that were ordered after the settlement haven't been implemented.

In 2009 police raided the bar and ordered patrons to the floor. An investigation revealed officers lied about what they saw inside the bar and deleted evidence from their phones to obscure what happened.

Grossman said among other things the department isn't training officers on protection from illegal search and seizure.

City Attorney Robert Godfrey said the department hasn't complied with the settlement but is hoping to resolve the issue.
