CLEVELAND- Two men wrongfully convicted of the 1975 murder of a Cleveland salesman are suing the city and the officers who worked on the case.

Brothers Kawame Ajamu, 57, and Wiley Bridgeman, 60, were found guilty of aggravated murder for the death of Harold Franks, and sentenced to death. They were exonerated in November after Bridgeman spent 37 years in prison. Ajamu was released in 2003.

On Thursday, the men filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio against the city of Cleveland and several former Cleveland police officers.
