Greensboro, NC -- A woman who says Greensboro Police Officers held her hostage and harassed her will have her day in court.

Nicole Pettiford claims officer Scott Sanders ordered her to go to a hotel where several officers reportedly questioned Pettiford for six hours against her will. Greensboro attorneys argued the officers were acting under the supervision of the US attorney's office and asked a judge to dismiss the case. The judge denied that motion.

Pettiford's attorney, Camille Payton, responded to the decision saying quote: "My clients and I are pleased with the judge's decision. Had things gone the other way, the case would have been dismissed and there would have been no avenue to justice for the Pettifords."

Officer Scott Sanders was a member of the infamous special intelligence unit, the same group accused of unfairly targeting black police officers. A grand jury indicted him on obstruction of justice and conspiracy charges.
