The main reason for the lawsuit is because, well, no justice, no peace. Junior was the one most seriously beaten and as of yet, there were no charges filed to what happened to him. Out of the "20 strong" only two have. Aziz's father blames Kamala Harris for not doing a damn thing and says the lawsuit was filed mainly because she wouldn't do anything. This comes after reports that the police wanted to charge five people, but Harris, as part of her "you can't lose a case if you don't charge anyone" policy, didn't think there was enough evidence to do it.
To prove he's not doing it for the money, Aziz says all the money he wins in damages will be donated to a charity.
