From Tulsa World:

The lawsuit filed Thursday alleges that [Officer] Henderson, who is awaiting a Dec. 6 sentencing date, “obtained a multitude of search warrants on the basis of perjured affidavits containing strikingly similar allegations.”

The Tulsa County District Court lawsuit claims that these affidavits “set forth nearly identical, boilerplate representations regarding information provided to Henderson by purported confidential informants.”

[The victim of the unlawful search] claims in [his pending civil suit] that many of the informants never existed and those that did had often lied about the matters they were supposed to have witnessed.
