The town of East Haven has gotten national attention for years for its alleged treatment of Latinos.

The U.S. Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division has said the town's police department had a deeply-rooted practice of discrimination.  And four of the town's police officers have been arrested.  Now, this week, two of those officers are on trial in federal court in Hartford.

You can check back all week for updates on the trial.  In addition, here's a story we did for NPR's All Things Considered that explains the trial as best, and as quickly, as possible.
