Two Los Angeles police officers filed a lawsuit against the city Monday, alleging that the Police Department transferred them from gang-enforcement efforts in the troubled Jordan Downs housing project after gang members and their supporters made many unsustained complaints about them.

Southeast Division foot beat Officers Ryan Moreno and Chuck Garcia also charge that department investigators worked inappropriately with gang members on a sting operation that did not find any wrongdoing by the two.
