Kodak Black says his civil rights were violated when federal law enforcement allegedly leaked pic of him in cuffs to the press – and now he wants the federal government to pay.

This week, the “;Zeze”; rapper filed a federal lawsuit from prison accusing the United States Marshals Service Chief Mark O”;Loughlin of trying to destroy his life and career by snapping and then leaking a photo of him in handcuffs shortly after cops detained him at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami last year.

Kodak said a U.S. Marshal O”;Loughlin ordered the Miami-Dade Police to take the photo – which showed him clad in a blue velour tracksuit grimacing with his hands behind his back – and then leaked it to a reporter. The Florida rapper said that the photo wasn”;t a mugshot, wasn”;t part of the investigation and was simply done to embarrass and humiliate him publicly, according to court papers obtained by BOSSIP. Shortly after the photo was taken, it appeared on a local news reporter”;s Twitter feed, the suit says.

( function() {
var func = function() {
var iframe_form = document.getElementById(‘wpcom-iframe-form-786bce7a171693d3c1597ac1ffa213d9-5ed8f5562377b’);
var iframe = document.getElementById(‘wpcom-iframe-786bce7a171693d3c1597ac1ffa213d9-5ed8f5562377b’);
if ( iframe_form && iframe ) {
iframe_form.submit();
iframe.onload = function() {
iframe.contentWindow.postMessage( {
‘msg_type’: ‘poll_size’,
‘frame_id’: ‘wpcom-iframe-786bce7a171693d3c1597ac1ffa213d9-5ed8f5562377b’
}, window.location.protocol + ‘//wpcomwidgets.com’ );
}
}

// Autosize iframe
var funcSizeResponse = function( e ) {
var origin = document.createElement( ‘a’ );
origin.href = e.origin;

// Verify message origin
if ( ‘wpcomwidgets.com’ !== origin.host )
return;

// Verify message is in a format we expect
if ( ‘object’ !== typeof e.data || undefined === e.data.msg_type )
return;

switch ( e.data.msg_type ) {
case ‘poll_size:response’:
var iframe = document.getElementById( e.data._request.frame_id );

if ( iframe && ” === iframe.width )
iframe.width = ‘100%’;
if ( iframe && ” === iframe.height )
iframe.height = parseInt( e.data.height );

return;
default:
return;
}
}

if ( ‘function’ === typeof window.addEventListener ) {
window.addEventListener( ‘message’, funcSizeResponse, false );
} else if ( ‘function’ === typeof window.attachEvent ) {
window.attachEvent( ‘onmessage’, funcSizeResponse );
}
}
if (document.readyState === ‘complete’) { func.apply(); /* compat for infinite scroll */ }
else if ( document.addEventListener ) { document.addEventListener( ‘readystatechange’, function(){
if (document.readyState === ‘complete’) {
func.apply();
}
}, false ); }
else if ( document.attachEvent ) { document.attachEvent( ‘onreadystatechange’, func ); }
} )();

Kodak – who has since changed his legal name to Bill K. Kapri – said the photo leak violated his constitutional rights to privacy and wants the Marshals to pay him money damages.

The government hasn”;t yet responded to the case.

Kodak has remained incarcerated on a three and a half year bid for lying to obtain firearms as a felon. He is currently appealing that sentence and has complained of harsh treatment on the inside.

We”;ve reached out to Kodak”;s lawyer for comment.
