Testimony resumes next week in a lawsuit over the mass arrests of protesters in the District 10 years ago. Among the expected witnesses is a contractor who says he uncovered an attempt by someone to delete electronic data in the case.

The lawsuit stems from the September 2002 arrests of about 400 demonstrators in protest of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank. The case recently has revolved around allegations of missing records and data and potential evidence tampering.

A hearing before a federal magistrate in D.C.'s federal court began earlier this month but was halted when the judge agreed that Terry Ryan, a D.C. police department lawyer, should have his own attorney before answering any more questions about the alleged evidence tampering.
