WASHINGTON -

D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier is scheduled to answer questions next month in a lawsuit stemming from the mass arrests of demonstrators in 2002.

Lawyers for some of those arrested during demonstrations of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank had sought the chief's testimony to resolve discrepancies in the statements provided by other witnesses.

The lawyers have submitted several areas of questions that they would like to see U.S. Magistrate John Facciola cover with Lanier.

A hearing has been scheduled for the afternoon of March 19.

The lawsuit has spanned years and has focused on allegations of evidence tampering by D.C. authorities.

Faccciola, who is serving as a special master in the case, says he'll give D.C. Attorney General Irvin Nathan a chance to testify if he wants.
