OGDEN, Utah (AP) - The Weber County Attorney’s Office has asked that a lawsuit filed by two men who say they were falsely labeled as gang members in an injunction be thrown out.

The Standard-Examiner reports (http://bit.ly/21KK4i2 ) that in a memo filed Thursday to a U.S. District Court judge county attorneys argued that plaintiffs Leland McCubbin and Daniel Lucero should not be able to seek a court judgment.

Both men were convicted under the rule that made it illegal for members of the Ogden Trece gang to appear together in public or be out past an 11 p.m. curfew.

McCubbin says he left the gang two years before the injunction was issued in 2010 and Lucero says he was never a member.

Prosecutors say since the injunction has already been tossed out by the Utah Supreme Court the plaintiffs don’t have legal grounds to sue.
