EAST HARTFORD- Four state parole officers and five members of the town police department have been named as defendants in a lawsuit filed by a Manor Circle family whose home was broken into last year in a mistaken search for a parole violator.

Acting on an unverified, anonymous tip, the parole officers, assisted by town police, broke into the home of Kevin Davidson, 20, of 80 Manor Circle, June 28, 2005, forced him to the floor and handcuffed him, according to the lawsuit, dated Oct. 19.
