CINCINNATI (CelebrityAccess) The Insane Clown Posse lost a further court battle in its fight to force the FBI to retract its 2011 claims the band’s fans are a as “a loosely-organized hybrid gang” that was “rapidly expanding into many U.S. communities.”
The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati on Monday, Dec. 18, agreed with a lower court decision ruling there was no basis for the lawsuit.
The Insane Clown Posse, originally known as JJ Boyz and Inner City Posse, may now appeal the matter to the U.S. Supreme Court.
More than 3,000 fans marched in Washington D.C. in September, 2017 to protest the FBI’s claim that appeared in its 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment report.
A Detroit federal judge dismissed the lawsuit in 2014, but the Sixth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reversed that decision in 2015, allowing the case to continue.
