The City of New Haven has filed a lawsuit against a group that police say held an illegal motorcycle rally last year.
The lawsuit was filed against EastCoastin Entertainment, LLC, EastCoastin Enterprises, LLC, event organizer Gabriel Canestri Jr., Salvatore Fusco, and C&D Investments, LLC.
The city hopes to recover more than $80,000 it spent during the rally last September to maintain public safety.
